South Korea lifts import ban on iPads

updated 02:35 pm EDT, Tue April 27, 2010

Communications regulator backtracks

South Korea has reversed its import ban on Apple's iPad, according to the Wall Street Journal. The government's communications regulator decided to reverse its original decision, now allowing the tablets to be brought into the country for personal use.

Many citizens had criticized the ban after tech sites showed famous Koreans using iPads despite the ban. Frustration escalated when the government's own minister of culture, tourism and sports was using an iPad during a presentation.

Customs rules still apply, and entrepreneurs are still prohibited from attempting to import iPads in large quantities. Apple has yet to announce a time-frame for an official iPad launch on Korea.
