Everything seemed peachy once Apple started selling hundreds of thousands of iPad units, but problems started to surface when Israel and some US universities banned the tablet. Fortunately for the Cupertino giant, Israel’s iPad ban was reversed, so now users can bring the device into the country without having to leave it behind at the customs.
Initially, iPads had to be left in the hands of custom officials when entering Israel, because the WiFi standard doesn’t match the one on the country, also used in Europe. Apparently, the ban was meant to be applied for US standard iPads, not for those built with European specs.
Now, the restriction is gone, after criticism from Israeli computer users.
