Israel Lifts iPad Ban

For those of you who couldn’t go to Israel because you just couldn’t part with your iPad, take note. The ban Israel had in place for the device has been lifted. Get your arse to Israel!

The about face comes just two weeks after an iPad ban was put in place due to the belief that the “magical” (Steve’s words, not mine!) tablet would interfere with other devices’ wireless signals.

That’s just not so, ruled the Israeli Communications Ministry, after it completed a test of the device. The test showed that the iPad successfully “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.”

Better still, for Israeli iPad lovers anyway, is that the government will now allow one iPad to be imported, per person, beginning today. [Reuters]
