TSA lets e-book readers, netbooks stay in bags

The US Transport Security Administration (TSA) extended its device permissions this week to include e-book readers, netbooks and other small portable electronic devices don't have to be removed from their bags when going through the security gates at airports. This already applies to iPads but now extends to Kindles, Nooks, Sony Readers and netbooks with screens smaller than those of regular notebooks, which still need to be removed from their bags and scanned separately.

What that size involved wasn't evident, but most netbooks have 10-inch screens. Some recent crossover models use 11.6-inch displays.

The TSA reminded flyers that they still need to remove notebooks and any devices larger than that, including gaming consoles, DVD players and video cameras that use tapes instead of hard drives or flash. Those with TSA-approved checkpoint-friendly cases can leave their notebooks in them.
