iPad praise

Users of the latest Apple’s new tablet, the iPad Mini, should be in for a fine time when on board aircraft suitably equipped.  That is according to IFE Services, a company based in Knutsford, Cheshire (England) which claims to be one of the leading in-flight entertainment providers to the airline industry.

The new device weighs in at just 308 grams (11oz) and features a 7.9 inch screen and storage capacity up to 64 Gb.  It can be loaded with a wide selection of movies, TV shows, music, games, e-magazines and apps and be rented out to passengers during their flight or offered complimentary depending on the airline’s business model.
IFE, which currently provides in-flight entertainment to over 50 airlines with a combination of embedded and portable systems, has signed content agreements for the larger iPad tablet with eight airlines to date, making it the market leader in this field.
“We believe that the iPad Mini is a brilliant portable IFE device for airline passengers to enjoy”, said Andy McEwan, CEO of IFE Services.  “It’s light, has a long battery life and can be loaded with a wide array of fantastic in-flight entertainment content.  We’re confident it will be a huge hit with airlines and their customers.” www.ifeservices.com
