Israel Lifts Ban on Apple’s iPad

1

ipadIsrael has lifted a ban forbidding tourists and citizens from bringing Apple Inc.’s iPad into the country, the Communications Ministry said in an e-mailed statement, according to Bloomberg News.

The ministry earlier this month requested that Israeli customs confiscate iPads brought in to the country at Ben-Gurion Airport, saying the product’s Wi-Fi transmitter did not confirm to local standards.

  1. This “ban” has left a nasty taste in the mouth.

    There was no logical reason for the ban – other than the fact that Shimon Peres’ son holds the Apple concession for Israel. Someone, somewhere in the Israeli establishment was illegally protecting Peres Jnr’s business interests.
