American Airlines buys 17,000 Samsung Galaxy Notes for flight attendants

This one caught my attention — finally news about a big ‘mega company’ that IS NOT deploying iPads!

Instead the iPad has lost out to the much more nimble Samsung Galaxy Note. This is a fantastic success for the team at Samsung. I would imagine that it will be good news for AA’s flight attendants too:

American Airlines on Wednesday said that it would be giving Galaxy Notes to all 17,000 of its flight attendants to use as in-flight data management devices that will provide “greater access to more information about the customers onboard their flight.”
