iPad Ban Lifted In Israel
iPad Ban Lifted In Israel – Israel will reportedly life its ban on iPad imports. The iPad originally began being confiscated if it was discovered being imported after security concerns were raised about the wireless connectivity of the device.
“Following the completion of intensive technical scrutiny, Israel Minister of Communications Moshe Kakhlon approved the import of the iPad to Israel,” Yechiel Shabi, a spokesperson for the Communications Ministry, recently said in a statement that was released to the media.
Israel had previously not allowed the devices to be imported into the country. They were worried that the wireless signal given off by the iPad would interfere with other devices that are currently in use. Most of these concerns were related to airports and airplanes. The import of iPad devices is now allowed, and will be allowed beginning Sunday from here and out. However, each individual will only be able to import one iPad per person. All of the devices that were confiscated while the investigation took place will be returned to their owners.
The iPad recently saw the release of the Wi-Fi only version that went on sale April 3 in the United States. The device was able to sell more than 300,000 units on the first day, making it one of the strongest debuts ever for a mobile device. Because the demand was so strong for the iPad throughout the United States, Apple chose to delay the release of the device internationally until they could handle the demand in their home country. Apple will start accepting preorders from international individuals starting on the 10th of May.
