So the 300K is probably court costs and legal fees, but what happens to the 2.25mil?
Does this go to the government, or will it actually be given back to the people that were "duped" into buying something that wasn't all it was supposed to be?
I would expect the customers to get a refund of the difference between the prices of the units with 3G and with 4G, then whatever is left over, should be evenly divided amongst those same customers as an "inconvenience" charge.
My guess is that would come out to more than what they paid for the iPad in the first place.
I don't think it's an excessive fine, it has to be enough to get the point across, I just don't like knowing that it will probably go into some slush fund to be wasted by bureaucrats on ridiculous things that don't benefit anyone.
