    Indian devs couldn’t sell paid apps? Geez, Goog, what took so long for that?

    That’s good news.

    Pilots get iPads, do you really think that’s a good idea, especially now that iMaps might get them iLost >.>

    • meliorist

      Let’s hope they don’t try flying to Dublin!

  • Pkmmte

    Why do passenger get better devices than the pilots?

    • ari_free

      So the pilots won’t get distracted.

  • Albert Naranjo

    Apple products do the important jobs for the people flying the plane. Samsung devices only trusted to serve beverages.

    • PhilNelwyn

      Pilots are hidden in the cockpit, it doesn’t matter if they have shameful devices.
      Flight attendants, being in contact with the passengers, need equipement you can be proud of…
      :P

    It’s a slow day at phandroid I guess with nothing being reported all day.

      How about Amazon dropping the Sprint HTC One X down to $69.99.
      Poor HTC…I’m sure they were hopping that they were going to knock it out of the park with the Onc X…..it will probably be $0.01 before Thanksgiving.

      • Mark2468

        The One X is still a good phone, it just came out at the wrong time, if I controlled HTC I would have the top of the line phones released at the beginning of the year, not around the same time as Samsung and Crapple being early and late summer, plus no micro sd card or removable battery really killed HTC for me. They really had better listen to feedback from the customers if they expect a turn around, a stock Android phone would be a good start.

      Yup, slow day indeed. As I promised in my previous “Troll” post, the GL benchmarks came in time, and it does not look good for Android. In some tests iPhone-5 beats Glalaxy S III by a factor of 3:

        The year isn’t over with yet, with several Nexus devices supposedly coming during the 4th quarter we will see how those benchmarks hold up.

        What can the iPhone do, that android can’t? Better its a small list compared to what android can, that ios can’t.
