American Airlines to Provide Samsung’s Galaxy Tab™ 10.1 for Premium Class In-Flight Entertainment

Chalk another one up for the Android army! Samsung and American Airlines have just announced that starting later this year, flyers in premium class will be using the Galaxy Tab 10.1 for their in-flight entertainment. Only on selected flights mind you, American Airlines plans to deploy 6000 of the tabs in their premium cabins on transcontinental flights between JFK and LA, JFK and San Francisco, and Miami and LA on the 767-200 and 767-300 aircraft. Also International flights to and from Europe and South America on the 767-300 as well as transcontinental flights departing Boston to LA on 757s. Tim Wagner, VP and general manager of enterprise sales for Samsung Mobile had this to say:

“Our engagement with American Airlines further illustrates the growing interest and demand we’re seeing from enterprise customers for the Samsung Galaxy portfolio…As we continue to grow our enterprise customer base, we’re committed to empowering a connected mobile workforce and enabling leading companies like American Airlines to enhance their customers’ experience by providing world-class entertainment and enterprise-ready devices.”

I see this as a good thing for the customers who will be experiencing the Galaxy Tab 10.1 on these flights. My only concern is the current lack of tablet optimized apps. Sure, they’ll be able to watch movies or play a few dual core optimized games and surf the web, but not use apps that are so much more convenient and really show off what a tablet is capable of. Hopefully by the time the Tabs are in service, the Market will have more optimized apps, and will show people (albeit the select few people that can afford premium class flights) that there are some decent alternatives to Apple’s iPad. What do you guys think? Would you like your in-flight entertainment to be on tablets provided for you, or would you be taking your own anyway? Let us know below or on our Facebook Wall!

    they can hear and see what your visually thinking
    this is the dead truth

    the reason alot of asians have completely expressionless faces, only associate with asians and dont associate with non asians very much is to avoid accidentally revealing that they can read read minds, if all over a billion asians were to show facial expressions all the time just as much as non asians, associate with non asians much more, and be much more friendly and talkative, then alot of them might accidentally reveal that they can read minds by accidentally showing a facial expression or dirty look when someone thinks, or visually pictures something in their mind they dont like or find astonishing or funny, and if they were all to associate with non asians alot more there would be alot more people around for them to accidentally show facial expressions when those other people think things they dont like, so they only associate with asians so there wont be anyone around for them to see that and have any accidents happen in the first place

    think about it, its not normal how alot of them act, and the entire way they act is all to hide their mind reading abilities, it makes perfect sense to do all of that to hide that they can read minds, because all of that is the perfect way to do it!
    every single asian on the planet is hiding their mind reading abilities, they value hiding their mind reading abilities more then their own lives!
    thats why nobody knows about it!

    try thinking, best yet visually picturing in your mind something something absolutely crazy as you possibly can when you are around asians, and try looking for asians who give people particular looks, especially dirty looks for what appears to be for completely no reason, that is them giving people looks when they hear and visually see someone thinking something they dont like, find funny or astonishing
    it still happens despite a large number of them having completely expressionless faces all the time, it would just happen alot more if none of them had completely expressionless faces all the time, its not uncommon!

    i know this sounds crazy, impossible, and completely unbelievable, BUT IT ISNT CRAZY WHEN ITS TRUE

    you have to spread the message!!!
    the world has to know about this!!!!
