On Monday, Samsung and American Airlines announced they will provide Samsung’s new Galaxy Tab 10.1 to travelers in seated in premium cabins for a select number of transcontinental and international flights. “American is the first North American airline to offer a branded tablet on board its aircraft,” says Virasb Vahidi, American Airline’s chief commercial officer in a release.
Current on-board entertainment devices will get the boot for 6,000 Galaxy Tab 10.1 devices on select flights between New York (JFK) and Los Angeles, Miami, and San Francisco, as well as between Boston and Los Angeles. International flights to South America and Europe will also receive the new Galaxy Tab 10.1 devices. Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 is thinner and lighter than the iPad 2, measuring 8.6mm thick and weighing in at 595 grams.
The airlines already offers in-flight movie streams to iPad users via Wi-Fi. There’s only so many times I can see Country Strong on cross-country flights. AmericanAirlines gave Android a sky-high boost earlier this month when it started offering the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 as an entertainment device for first-class passengers. American will deploy 6,000 Galaxy Tabs on Boeing 767 flights between New York's JFK airport and Los Angeles, JFK and San Francisco, and Miami and Los Angeles.
Besides replacing American's current entertainment system, the Wi-Fi-enabled tablets also will offer passengers Internet access during flights for an additional fee. Tablet devices are slowly creeping onto commercial flights in various forms. Qantas subsidiary Jetstar has tested using iPads as entertainment devices and Alaska Airlines recently began replacing paper flight manuals with iPads after a test period.
