Apple Sued (Again!) for Breach of Warranty over 3G Speed

Two things near and dear to my heart have converged in one place: contract law and the iphone.  Apple was already facing lawsuits over 3G reception, and now PCWorld reports:

Apple and AT&T Mobility are facing two new lawsuits claiming the speed and infrastructure of the 3G network is insufficient.

The lawsuits were filed in the United States District Court of the Southern District of Florida and in the United States District Court Eastern District of Texas Sherman Division this week.

The lawsuit claims this violates statutory and common law, including consumer protection statutes, negligent misrepresentation, unjust enrichment, and breaches of express and implied warranties.

The lawsuits make eight claims against the companies including Breach of Express Warranty, Breach of Implied Warranty of Fitness of Purpose, Unjust Enrichment, Negligent Misrepresentation, Intentional Misrepresentation, and Breach of Contract.

Well, at least 3G is still so much faster than EDGE (in a fit of irrepressible geekiness, I tried this test myself on the AT&T network):
