More airlines are adopting iPad’s are their primary entertainment devices and are getting away from that old stuff you find fitted in the backseat screens. We have seen this happening earlier with Jetstar and now Qantas is also ready with their entertainment system “Qstreaming” clubbed with iPad’s. The service will free of charge and you might get chance to club your personal iPad’s with the service.
As of May this year, there were 23 Boeing 767-300 aircraft, according to the Qantas site, each with between 229 and 254 seats, meaning that more than 5,000 iPads would be required to kit out the fleet. However, Qantas said it was currently reviewing retirement options for a few of the aircraft.
The system will roll out to the first aircraft in the fourth quarter of this year. Most of the flights offering the service will be on Australia’s east coast routes, with some also flying to Perth. The service will be free of charge. The airline was still assessing whether it will extend the system so that customers can use their own tablets to access the entertainment.
China => Honk Kong => China(with lesser priced iPad), over 200,000 smuggled since release.
Few brutal ways to compare 2 tablets, enjoy since its not mine or yours :
Sadly and surprisingly the new iPad screen seems more fragile than the predecessor, so careful with that new table of yours :
