I'm curious, did you originally wanted black? I wanted black, but now i'm not sure but I guess I'll find out tomorrow!A few quick impressions ...
I picked up the white. It is dead sexy. The plastic back is really nice and doesn't feel cheap or like a step back from the chrome.
I highly doubt we'll be seeing 3G allowed on planes anytime soon. "3G" is the wireless providers network, meaning that the signal is received from the cell towers, meaning that it carries voice and data (simultaneously, no less, which is a notch about EDGE). So in order for 3G to be allowed on planes the airlines would have to allow regular voice usage ... which probably ain't-a-gonna happen.I can confirm over wifi (believe this is mentioned in the guided tour) unsure on 3g.
Just fwiw, there are plenty of private jets that have wifi on them. I had a client that owned a Gulfstream and it was part of the options. It's just not very reliable or economical when you start adding many users to it.WiFi on planes will be accomplished, I imagine, just as it is on busses, trains, and ferries: the transport has a connection of some sort (satellite, typically) which is shares via a wireless router. Presumably airlines do this because of they can strictly control the frequency, bandwidth, etc of the wireless signal being passed through the plane.
