The rollout involves about 1000 devices. You can check out the video here –
There is a bit of marketing claptrap; and it may require the installation of Silverlight, but the idea of using tablets in-flight and its implementation is nice. Gives clues on what ‘mobile learning’ is actually about – providing information and connected tools at the point of need.
