Israel Now Welcoming The iPad

Starting today, Israel is reversing its ban on Apple’s iPad. The device was previously banned amid questions of the devices compliance with Israel’s laws and requirements for wireless power output.

Israel’s Minister of Communications stated that after intensive technical scrutiny, the device would no longer be confiscated by customs officials.

“Starting Sunday we will begin allowing iPads into the country” said Moshe Kakhlon. The ban was based on suspicions that the iPad interfered with the wireless capability of other equipment.

The Ministry also authorized the release of twenty iPads that were previously confiscated for return to their owners.

Reports that Israel had banned the device because Apple’s App Store rejected its favourite new game for the iPad turned out to be false.
