Ever forgot your laptop or tablet when you get on a flight and wished that the airline provided one to you? Well now you might finally have the chance to live that little scenario out. American Airlines has announced that they are going to start providing the unlocked Samsung (Galaxy Tab 10.1) to their riders that are sitting in first class. This will be an option that is only going to be available on some of the longer flights that the company has to offer, but if it is a hit we could start seeing it more and more.
So far, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be available on flights from Los Angeles to New York, San Francisco to New York, Boston to Los Angeles and Also Los Angeles to Miami. This is the first airline to begin this practice, but if it is successful you can bet that they will not be the last. All of the flights that the tablet will be allowed on will be 757s. These tablets may or may not come loaded with various apps, that information has not been released at this time. They will probably not have internet access, and if they do it will probably be provided by the airline itself to make sure that the device does not mess with any of the dials and functions on the plane.
So far more than 6,000 tablets have been ordered by the company in total, and American Airlines will also be offering their passenger’s access to their onboard WiFi, which many expected following the announcement of the tablets being offered to their first class customers. Hopefully they will be able to put some movies and music on the tablets as well to increase the potential for entertainment on the devices.
