Israel has banned all imports of Apple's hottest new product, the iPad, citing concerns that its wireless frequencies are incompatible with national standards.

Customs officials said Thursday they already have confiscated about 10 iPads since Israel announced the new regulations this week.

The blanket ban prevents anyone — even tourists — from bringing an iPad into Israel until officials certify that the computers are in compliance with local transmitter standards.

Confiscated iPads will be held by customs until their owners depart the country.

The iPad is a lightweight tablet combining the features of a notebook computer with the touch-pad functions of the iPod. It went on sale in the U.S. last week and can currently only be purchased there.
