Use a Phone in Flight, Courtesy of Aircell’s New Handset (Not for Everyone)
Aircell has an Android smartphone coming, one that was created specifically for aircraft use, so it could come in handy, if you own a private jet. This device is not for everyone, but at least it can be used on an aircraft, plus it will be backwards compatible with all Aircell Axxess communications systems.
The specs are a mystery, but we know that the handset should pack a 3.8 inch touch display and support for the upcoming GoGo Biz Voice service. Pricing isn’t known, but we guess it’ll be one for people who usually fly rather than drive. The phone is specifically created for aicraft use and it should be available in late 2011.
It’s also Bluetooth compatible, made of quality materials and easy to operate.
