Obviously we don’t have enough to do while sitting cramped on an airplane. Now Norwegian and Panasonic have partnered to give us Android-powered entertainment while in-flight.

There aren’t a lot of details yet, but the picture looks intriguing. The system will be built into the seat back, and according to the press release, it will give users access to movies, music and games, similar to what we’re used to on our personal devices.

Of course, you’ll also be able to buy snacks and drinks in addition to accessing entertainment content.

There were no specifics of costs to user, if any, although from this quote, I’m assuming it won’t be free:

“… enabling Norwegian to engage passengers in an even more amazing entertainment experience while creating new revenue streams.”

“Revenue streams” sounds like it’s going to cost something, so I’ll need more information before I plan to leave my tablet in my carry-on bag.

Of course, the biggest question of all. Can we use it during take-off and landing?
