Limited to much lower speeds in some countries or cities due to either laws or regulations or physical conditions, but you can easily drive it at lower speeds.
Still capable of 180 mph if you take the car somewhere else.
Capable of LTE

AND, even in Australia, the iPad uses 4G - according to international standards.
So what's the difference?
Incorrect. The Australian government TRIED to fine Apple, but the issue was settled before it was determined if Apple was guilty or not.
Furthermore, the iPad supports LTE - regardless of whether Australia has the same frequencies or not - just as a Corvette is capable of 180 mph even if you live in New York City.
Please show me where Apple was convicted of a crime.
Oh, wait. They weren't. So get off YOUR high horse and accept that you are wrong.
This is your issue, you don't seem to be understanding this very simple concept, you are getting overly emotive with this. The issue is not if the iPad is usable in Australia, it is can you use the then advertised LTE in Australia.
I will help you with this answer, it is NO.
Apple advertised a LTE product in Australia, then in the fine print said you can't actually use it. According to Australian law that is illegal. Now, try and prove this wrong, come on, please try, because you can't, this is a simple fact that you seem to be having a massive issue with, Apple was in the wrong and they have paid up for the fact.
Please stop with these stupid car analogies, they are no the same thing, you have been told several times they are not comparable, yet you just go on and on about it again. This whole thing is about advertising, and advertising within finely detailed laws.
You keep going on about 4G, this has nothing to do with 4G, I will say this again as you still don't seem to understand it. Apple advertised a LTE product, then said you can't use LTE in Australia in fine print, according to the Australian government this is illegal, nothing to do to with the definition of 4G. This is the difference.
Sorry, Apple settled, this means they realised they were in the wrong, and they knew if would be cheaper to settle. But wait, you go on about cars again, what is your thing with cars?
Again, sorry I said they were convicted, they settled, Apple accepted they were in the wrong and settle. I will accept this.
Now your turn, Apple broke Australian advertising laws, this is a fact, please accept this, and move on.
