CNET’s Crave blog reports this morning that there is a chance we may see text messaging allowed in the US soon. I am not sure how this is possible if the phones which allow the texting to take place are crippled (remember no calls are allowed in flight).
Apparently Australian and French airlines are allowing this feature in the air so the blog feels the Americans can’t be far behind. I am all for increased productivity while traveling via airplane. I hope US carriers do indeed allow this to happen.
