Caveat emptor, Israel-bound iPad owners. From Bar Ben Ari and Zohar Blumenkrantz in HAARETZ:
The Communications Ministry has blocked the import of iPads to Israel, and the customs authority has been directed to confiscate them. The decision follows the refusal of the ministry’s engineering staff to compromise on testing the device’s suitability and compliance with Israeli wireless networks.
Organization is such a terrible thing to waste.
