“Israel will begin allowing people to bring Apple iPads into the country starting on Sunday, two weeks after customs began confiscating the tablet computers for fear they would interfere with other wireless devices,” Tova Cohen reports for Reuters.
“‘Following the completion of intensive technical scrutiny, Israel Minister of Communications Moshe Kakhlon approved the import of (the) iPad to Israel,’ the Communications Ministry said in a statement,” Cohen reports. “The tests proved the device identifies the Wi-fi access point in its surroundings and adjusts itself automatically, enabling the iPad to be operated without interfering with other wireless devices, the ministry said. ‘Accordingly, the import of a single device per person will be permitted commencing Sunday, April 25th,’ the ministry said.”
Cohen reports, “The ministry also ordered the release of 20 iPads that had been confiscated.”
