Tablet Imports Plummet in Iran

Reports speak of a 73% slump in tablet imports following foreign currency rate fluctuations and a new crackdown on contraband tablet devices. 
During the first month of the current Iranian year which ended on April 20, the value of 7-inch and larger tablets supporting SIMs mostly brought into the country from China and the United Arab Emirates stood at $514,577, a staggering 73% year-on-year tumble, according to statistics released by the Islamic Republic of Iran's Customs Administration. The same time span last year saw the import of over $1,956,342 worth of tablets.
The decline can be traced back to a new directive, requiring tablets supporting SIM cards to enter the country under the condition of obtaining an identification number and registry with state institutions.
