Russia has reclassified the iPad as a personal computer, scraping a 5% import duty that was previously applied to the device, reports Vedomosti.

The iPad was previously classified as a navigation device since it could have a GPS radio for positioning data.

AppleInsider notes that "Tuesday's report did not state whether the Russian Federal Customs Service drew a distinction between an iPad with GPS versus without. It did, however, say that "other" tablets with GPS would still be classified as navigation devices and would be subject to the 5 percent tax."
