No it’s not the sequel to the latest Samuel L. Jackson, thriller/comedy. It’s what is going to happen to passengers flying on Irish aircraft carrier Ryanair’s flights starting next year. All passengers flying one of Ryanair’s Boeing 737 jets from Edinburgh to Dublin and Shannon airports will be able to use their BlackBerry and any other mobile device while the plane is in the air. Ryanair hopes to have their full fleet of 200 aircraft equipped with this feature by 2008.
I know what every BlackBerry Cool reader is thinking right now: it’s about time. We want to see more announcements like this across the pond as well.
