Galaxy Tab 10.1 now available to American patrons

As promised back in June, American Airlines is now offering the Galaxy Tab 10.1 to passengers flying in premium seats. The devices will replace the airline's traditional entertainment options and come preloaded with 70 movies, including 30 new releases and three exclusive titles from Paramount. TV shows and audio files will also be available on the tablets.

The Android slate will be offered to First and Business Class passengers on transcontinental flights between New York's JFK airport and Los Angeles, JFK and San Francisco, Miami and San Francisco, and Miami and Los Angeles on Boeing 767-200 and 767-300 aircraft. International flights to and from Europe and South America in 767-300 aircraft, and transcontinental flights between Boston and Los Angeles in 757 aircraft, are also equipped with the devices.

The first quarter of 2012 will expand the functionality of the tablet onboard the planes, with Wi-Fi capability, games and e-reader content, among other improvements.

The same airline, meanwhile, is expected to allow pilots to use iPads for use other than entertainment, including as logbooks as well as for charting and flight manuals.
