Aircell takes Android to new heights

Aircell, a well-known provider of inflight connectivity has delivered the Aircell Smartphone cabin handset for business aircraft. The Aircell Smartphone allows passengers to place and receive voice calls aboard business aircraft just as they would with a terrestrial mobile phone. It is also powered by the Android OS, giving it a full-range of multimedia capabilities not previously seen in handsets designed for inflight use.

It centers on a large 3.8-inch capacitive touchscreen display and is designed for interchangeable wireless or wired operation. An integrated audio jack for wired headsets and earbuds is included, as well as Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free functionality.

The Aircell Smartphone is designed to be integrated with Aircell's ATG 4000 and ATG 5000 inflight communication systems. It is expected to become available later this year.
