In-flight email on US airline
RIM and Yahoo have teamed up to trial a service letting passengers on JetBlue flights access email via Wi-Fi while in the air.
Two firms have announced plans to offer free, in-flight Wi-Fi connections for laptop computers and smart phones on flights on the JetBlue airline.
The new service, offered by Yahoo and Research in Motion (RIM), will allow passengers to access customized Yahoo mail and instant messenger services on their laptops or access corporate e-mails on Wi-Fi enabled versions of the popular Blackberry device from RIM.
According to a spokesperson for RIM, the first JetBlue flight trialling the service will be on December 11. Reports suggest the firm is considering rolling it out across its entire fleet if the trial is successful.
