Russian Antimonopoly service: iPad evades customs duty
The Federal Customs Service says the tablet computer can be imported into the country without customs duty. But the Federal Antimonopoly Service is saying hold on a minute, what about the other tablet makers.
Brands other than Apple face a 5% duty because of their in-built GPS module.
The antimonopoly watchdog suspects the customs service of violating competition law and establishing preferential conditions for iPad computers.
The antimonopoly watchdog also reported the customs service rejected a proposal to extend the zero customs duties for all tablet computer manufacturers.
