    The galaxy note fits their use exactly. Thats the size they were looking for since it's a tablet and phone in one device.

    Very Smart Move!

    Globally they will enjoy a far better ROI than if they had chosen iOS.

    From the article, American Airlines choose the Galaxy Note phone instead of more iPads. Just goes to show that phablets are a great form factor. iPads would have been too cumbersome for flight attendents to carry while an iPhone does not have the screen area.

    AA chose a Samsung phone, not a Samsung tablet.

    A cousin of my flies Air China. They bought their top execs and pilots Samsung Windows 8 tablets.

    Well they don't use them. :p

    I actually have one myself; quite nice.

    surely this was going to be inevitable, the business market has always eluded apple.

    Meh, they are all equally as terrible. It's to the point now that I'm just happy to make it to my destination on time and more importantly alive albeit with SARS. "Would you like window, isle, or between two incredibly sick people?"

    I've seen similar devices in different harbors.
