Advertising has proven itself to be a vital part to the success of a product. Good ads turn into money, and bad or false advertisement would either mean low profit, or in Apple's recent case, losing money.
Apple has released its statement to address the issues that they have with their new iPad that was sold to Australia. The company is willing to give a refund to Australian customers about the misinformation on the new iPad's 4G capability.
New technology news; Apple offers refund for new iPad
The new iPad was advertised to be fully compatible to the 4G network, and when it was advertised to the Australian community it made a significant factor in the buying decision of a few consumers. But it turns out that the full compatibility of the new iPad to the 4G network is true to American customers, but not to some countries including Australia.
In markets where the new iPad is not compatible to the 4G network, it automatically reverts and switch to the 3G network.
For those who don't know the difference between a 4G and a 3G network, let me explain quickly. These €G€ networks are evolution of the mobile phone technology. The 1G network is the analog signal that was used by our bulky, Jurassic phones. The 2G is the transition from the analog to digital signal, thus making the service faster and it widened the coverage area. The 3G is a faster version of the 2G network, and it allowed easier data transfer to larger files. As the successor of all the mobile network technology, the 4G network is the fastest of them all.
