InFlight Labs Announces Plane-to-Cell Text Messaging
InFlight Labs today announced a new product, called InFlight Messenger, that allows airplane passengers to conduct text and/or IM chat sessions between a computer and mobile phones that are on the ground. The software makes use of the Wi-Fi service that's available on some planes and takes messages typed onto a PC and converts them into text messages. It supports two-way conversations, as well as group messaging (up to 25 recipients). InFlight Labs says messages take approximately 4 to 7 seconds to be delivered, and messages can be time stamped. The service requires only an internet connection to work, and can be used while in the air or on the ground. For a limited time, InFlight Labs is allowing people to sign up for free. Service normally costs beween $1.00 and $1.99 depending on the package chosen by the user.
