  • #MROAM Mobile Connectivity & Dead Spots
    Posted by Lee Ann Tegtmeier 10:40 AM on Apr 17, 2013

    Two big issues being discussed right now in tablet technology session here at the MRO Americas Conference are data plans (big cost, and you don't need 4G to download manuals) and dead spots, which clearly hinder the ability to use mobile devices effectively. 

    Atlas Air is deploying Android-based devices and FedEx is deploying iPads to pilots. FedEx's Pete White says iPads have gone through many regulatory approvals, which Samsung devices haven't yet--making iPads quicker to deploy.

    White says Evernote is good but doesn't cut it with legal when it comes to regulatory management of content.
