As further evidence of the post-PC trend, the majority of access - though only just - is on tablets, accounting for 35% of usage compared to 33% for laptops. When it comes to iOS devices, iPads are used more often than iPhones.

Web-browsing is the top activity for Gogo users, with email, social networking, news and weather completing the top five slots.

Gogo is available on Air Canada, Air Tran, Alaskan Airlines, American Airlines, Delta, Frontier, United, US Airways, and Virgin America, with over 1,500 commercial airplanes and over 5,000 business jets equipped for the service.

this is hilarious. Android, cheap quality and minimal existence in premium places.

I hate the "post-PC" term. Tablets become more like PCs every day, so eventually they will essentially be the same thing. But that just means that the tablet is becoming the PC, not that the PC is going away. And even so, traditional desktop computing will always be relevant even if it is less popular.

The term will die out. People just use it at the moment because there is a clear distinction between tablet and PC for now. Just an easy way of showing people where the future is going.

Android owners, overall, are less affluent with smaller disposable income. They won't be flying as much as their jobs and lifestyle keep them from doing so. And those that do likely don't realize inflight wireless is even available, or can't afford the fee for same, small as it is.

Simple economics really. No surprises.

or they are too busy spending hours customising their home screen only to change it again next week. They remind me of the people who get silly little tattoos on their ankle, like a heart or a butterfly then regret it a year later.

Its amazing how many Android devices have reportedly shipped but any sort of useful data coming back shows that nobody is using them.

Interesting.

I've got a theory about this are you ready ? Android users brag so much about themes and launchers because that's all they ever do on them , who would want to save their credit card details on a phone that's sneezes malware ?
And
I'm curious to hear from someone who switched ecosystems ! I tried it and had to go back 2 weeks later

Could they add a few more shades of blue to those charts? Those are some of the worst charts I've ever seen. I had to turn the contrast up to eleven just so I could read them.
