Airlines are working on ways to get passengers in-flight high speed internet access at prices considerably cheaper than the $4 per minute charged by the current Airfone service. One reason they are doing this is to provide an alternative for their passengers who are BlackBerry addicts. Apparently, BlackBerries still work quite well even in mid-air, and their surreptitious use is nearly impossible to detect because they only require being connected to the internet for a burst of a few seconds.
