Israeli authorities confiscating incoming iPads at airports

The iPad might seem like one of the most travel-friendly gadgets available now, but it's not welcome everywhere yet. TSA might not be so strict about the Apple slate computer, but Israeli airport officials are going so far as confiscating all iPads entering the country.

The iPad might seem like one of the most travel-friendly gadgets available now, but it's not welcome everywhere yet. TSA might not be so strict about the Apple slate computer, but Israeli airport officials are going so far as confiscating all iPads from travelers entering the country with them.

Apparently the source of the problem is that the Wi-Fi broadcast levels emitting from the iPad are too "low-powered" for use in Israel as well as Europe. At least 10 iPads have been reported as confiscated so far, but they aren't kept away from their owners forever as they are returned upon departure. However, iPad owners have to pay a fee for each day its kept in custody or pay to have it shipped home.

I haven't read anything about iPads being banned from any other country, but it's quite an interesting stance regarding performance standards. Does anyone find it too strict? Or has anyone had a problem traveling with their iPad yet?
