Aircell annnounces world’s first ‘airborne smartphone’

25 Mar

No, you won’t be able to use it on your next flight, but if you’re lucky enough to have your own business jet, you will soon be able to get Aircell’s new Android-based smartphone designed for aircraft use. While the company’s staying fairly mum on specifics at the moment, these electronic gadgets are said to pack a 3.8-inch capacitive display, and it’s designed to be backwards-compatible with all Aircell Axxess communications systems currently in production, as well as its forthcoming Gogo Biz Voice service. No word on pricing just yet, but Aircell is promising to reveal that sometime before the phone launches in “late 2011.” Head on past the break for the full press release.
