    He's not the only one. Dmitry Medvedev, the president of Russia, has one. Even though iPad is illegal in Russia

    iPad has not been approved by Russian's security service (FSB) due to some security system in iPad. Thus all iPads are theoretically illegal as no store in Russia is allowed to sell them. Yet.

    His favourite app is Scrabble?? Well there might be hope for him after all, then. I'm in shock and awe.

    The comrades at the FSB deem it highest priority to determine if the CIA has embedded some spying chip to steal Russian secrets, you know, cold-war era stuff.

    Jokes aside, FSB has regulations for Russia, just like any other country. Apple has yet to comply with those; just like the CE in Europe, FCC here, UL and others.
