When Jetstar Met the iPad

on June 1, 2010 | Apple iPad | Comments (0)

The iPad is making it’s way all over the ground in Australia but now it is taking to the skies.

Jetstar is looking at trialling an in-flight rental service for the iPad to be rolled out on selected domestic flights later this month. The iPads will be preinstalled with videos, e-books, magazines, games and music. The devices will be rented out at a cost of $10.

I spoke with a customer service representative from Jetstar this afternoon and it was confirmed that the devices will not be connected to the internet. In-flight internet in Australia is going to be a thing of the near future but until then, your tweets are going to have to stay on ground.

I am sure this rental service is going to give passengers a nice taste test of the iPad. A nice enough taste to help Apple push even more units than they already are at the moment.
