Israel Approves iPads

iPads Are Now Free to Travel in Israel

After a surprising ban, the Associated Press is reporting that Israel has lifted the ban on iPads. Initially, Israeli officials were concerned about the device and wanted to wait until it was deemed appropriate by their standards before selling them in the country. Now, after conducting "intensive technical scrutiny in a controlled laboratory," the devices are allowed into the country.

Since the international launch of the iPad has been delayed until May, people in Israel waiting to get their hands on the device will be able to do so on schedule with Apple's release, and foreign travelers will be able to enter the country with the devices. Reasons for the previous ban are still unclear, but officials are denying it had anything to do with worry that wireless signals would interfere with military equipment.

Sounds crazy, but I think a few universities experienced the WiFi issues Israel was fearing when they delayed use of the iPad.
