[FONT="]As people start heading off on their holidays, and airports and airplanes get packed with travellers, more and more of them will be able to enjoy using Wi-Fi during their flight than probably would have done even a year ago. With this in mind, AllThings D reports on a new survey from Gogo, the company that provides Wi-Fi services for passengers on more than 6,000 aircraft for many different airlines, including Delta, Alaska, Virgin America, United and American. According to Gogoâ€™s data, two-thirds of the mobile devices that are using its in-flight Wi-Fi are iPhones, 20 percent are iPod touches, and only 12 percent are Android devices, with a surprisingly lowly 6 percent of devices being BlackBerry, and Windows phones and others making up a collective last place.
[FONT="]This particular survey didnâ€™t take iPads or other tablets into account because Gogo places them in the â€œcomputerâ€ category (which also means you have to pay higher rates to use the in-flight Wi-Fi with them). However, Gogo did reveal that the iPad accounts for over one-third of large screens using their in-flight Wi-Fi service, with all Windows version large-screen devices having a total of 41 percent of the usage share, and Mac OS large-screen devices having just below 20 percent share.[/FONT]
