Apple to be sued by iPad users

Jacob Balthazar, Claudia Keller and John Brownin claim the tablet is “virtually unusable” and can cut out after only a few minutes of use in direct sunlight.
They accuse Apple of a variety of breaches, from “misleading and deceptive advertising” to various breaches of business and consumer protection law. It also brings specifics to the false marketing claim that the iPad is “just like reading a book”. They claim “Books do not close when a reader is enjoying them in sunlight”.
Lawyers behind the complaint are seeking class action status, meaning they could take action on behalf of all affected iPad users.
