Think about the first time you ever flew on a plane. Perhaps your experience depends on how long ago your first flight was. If you first flew 20 years ago, you might have been very impressed by the fact that there was an in-flight movie and an extra bag of peanuts.
Now imagine yourself from 20 years ago boarding a plane and finding that you have a tablet at your disposal for the duration of your flight. First of all, your 20-years-younger self would certainly be quite excited, considering he probably still uses a dial-up connection and thinks America Online and the Internet are the same thing.
If you travel now, you know how convenient it can be to have access to smartphones, laptops and tablets while on a flight. Apparently WestJet – a Canadian airline – understands this. The company has announced that it will provide Samsung Galaxy Tab devices for rent to flyers during select flights.
Those who rent these devices can use them to rent movies, play games and watch TV programs. It’s almost like WestJet is allowing flyers to remove the in-flight entertainment screen from the seatback in front of them and instead use it as a handheld device.
Of course, given the fact that the Samsung Galaxy Tab is an Android-operated device, you definitely have a more complete device in your hands with a Samsung Galaxy Tab than you would have with your seatback screen.
Initial plans call for offering 68 tablets per plane for four of the planes in WestJet’s fleet. Although many people will bring their own iPads, iPhones and other tablets and smartphones, WestJet is banking on the fact that some people will rent the Samsung Galaxy Tab anyway so they can have the opportunity to access the on-board movies.
We told you that Samsung is releasing two versions of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 – a 7.7-inch version and a 10-inch version. The 10-inch version appears to be the same size as the current Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, however the 7.7-inch version of the device will be a new size for Samsung.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.7-inch version is scheduled to be released a few weeks before the 10-inch version. So, if you are planning on ordering and receiving your Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 before the end of April, perhaps now is the time to think about what kind of Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 case you will use to protect your device.
May we recommend the Piel Frama Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 cases that are available for preorder on Cases.com. Not only are these cases beautiful to look at, but they are also able to provide your Galaxy Tab 2 with the maximum amount of protection that you need.
Piel Frama cases have long been able to merge beauty and quality into one case. The company has been manufacturing leather goods since 1945. This means that they have had a long time to hone their craft.
One of the features that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 case by Piel Frama delivers includes a “cinema” position. This means that the case will allow you to fold it in a way that folds the Galaxy Tab 2 screen up in place. This will make it easier for you to watch movies or TV shows.
Because the Piel Frama Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 case for the 7.7-inch device is custom-built for the Galaxy Tab, this means that you will be able to use the custom cutouts to easily access all of the ports and buttons on your tablet.
