    News: Israel bans iPad imports

    from iLounge | All Things iPod, iPhone, iTunes and beyond by Jesse David Hollington


    Israeli newspaper Haaretz reports that the Communications Ministry in Israel has blocked the import of iPads to that country, directing customs officers to confiscate any iPads that are brought in from the U.S. According to ministry officials the iPad has not received the approval required for wireless devices to operate in Israel, the problem being that its wireless technology is “not compatible with Israeli standards.”

    maybe the custom officials got tired of waiting to get their own ipads.
