Apple gives in: iPad 3 drops '4G' tag to avoid lawsuits

TheGift73 writes "In silence and without comment, Apple has quietly dropped the “4G” tag from its new iPad 3 tablet in favour of the legal-friendly “Cellular” term.

The Cupertino-based tablet maker had faced litigation in Australia and criticism from a number of European consumer groups after it was found the 4G-capable devices would not work outside the United States and Canada, despite no change in global marketing.

Apple’s U.K. and Australia online retail stores have both replaced the “4G” tag in favour of “Cellular” to appease both consumer groups, Australia’s Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) and the UK’s Advertisement Standards Authority (ASA)."
