Nasdrovia! Russia scraps the 5% import tax on iPads

By , Mar 6, 2012

Good news for our Russian friends who are thinking about getting an iPad. The country recently reclassified the iPad as a PC, putting it in a category of devices that are exempt from the 5% import tax:

Russia scrapped a 5 percent import duty on Apple Inc. (AAPL)’s iPad after classifying it as a computer rather than a GPS-navigation device, Vedomosti reported, citing an order by the country’s customs service.

Other tablet makers are gringing!

    Actually it’s ” Na zdrowie” lol. But I guess no one would understand how to pronounce it if they spelled it like that.
