On the mindef intranet forums, someone pasted a two sentence reply from MSD. Ipad is banned in camps as the functionality is close to that of a laptop.

Did anyone retort and ask why not ban HTC non camera phone and ipod touch since they have the same functionality?

Not only that, because the iPad cannot function as a standalone "computer" at all since it is very dependent on iTunes and the computer it's paired with. You can't just plug in a thumbdrive and to copy files in or out, and neither could you plug in the iPad to any MINDEF computer and expect to be able to drag-and-drop stuff.

Upon initial verification with MSD, the ipad is strictly not allowed in camps as of now. The ipad is classified under the laptop category on MSD's list of contraband items.

Once you jailbreak the ipad, it can be writable to the disk so you can copy any secret information on the ipad. Even with its 3g capabilities, you can send out secret information to someone without going through SAF web proxy.

I believe SAF provides computer terminals now for NS men to surf net through their proxy so to curb iPad desires.

Except that you can't find a USB port on any Mindef computer to connect to. I think.
