Not only has Israel banned Apple’s popular new iPad device, they’re also disallowing import via tourists. Claiming unresolved wireless issues with the device, the country has placed a temporary ban on them.
Apparently, the iPad has “powerful” WiFi signals that can interfere with other devices. To prevent this possibility, Customs officials are confiscating the devices, at the Communications Ministry request, and already have around ten. Visitors to the country will have to leave iPads with Customs and pay a storage fee.
