Apple's iPad headache highlights LTE spectrum woes

While North American Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) fans were thrilled to find out that the latest iteration of the iPad features LTE compatibility, iPad buyers outside of the New World are considerably less than pleased to find out the device has no chance of working on LTE networks in their countries. Now that Australia's government has applied a little pressure and convinced Apple to hand out refunds to Aussie iPad buyers who are upset that their new tablets can't access their local LTE networks, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom are threatening to follow suit. Yet this problem is less Apple's and more the entire wireless industry's, as this article point out.
