New iPad owners in Australia scorned by false 4G LTE advertising offered refund

Apple has quickly responded to the accusations that they're misrepresenting the new iPad in Australia as 4G-capable by offering misled buyers a refund on their device.  That's not much of an offer, considering they're all within their 30-day return window, but a sensible answer to those that are unhappy that they can't get LTE access on their new iPads.

Only 6% of iPad sessions on cell networks, even LTE iPads spend most time on Wi-Fi

Localytics has recently compiled some of their data through apps, and has concluded that only 6% of iPad sessions are made through a cellular network of some kind. They've also figured out that 89.7% of iPads out there are Wi-Fi-only, while 1.5% are the LTE-enabled new iPads. Even among new iPads, only 36% of the sessions are using 4G LTE.  It's worth noting that the new iPad just went on sale in a lot of countries today, though other studies show that the U.S. takes up the lion's share of app activity.

New iPhone (iPhone 5,1) coming fall 2012 with LTE, similar sized screen

While Apple has only just released the new iPad, iMore has already started to hear more about the next generation iPhone (iPhone 5,1). We previously reported that Apple was working to reduce the size of the traditional 30-pin dock connector to something closer akin to a micro-dock so there'd be more room inside for other components (similar to how they went from a mini-SIM to a micro-SIM in 2010). Yesterday we reported that, as of last month, Apple was planning to stick with the current 3.5-inch screen size for the new iPhone, but that it wasn't set in stone and it could get a little bigger (though nowhere near as big as current 4.5-inch-plus Android phones.)

Following that story we received some additional information.
