Per session is exactly what you thought it was. A session is considered a flight. They have different prices for flight times. They also have a day pass and a 30 day pass. I found their pricing on their website.

My thoughts exactly Inspector great for people who travel alot on business trips as this could be the next frequent flyer miles program, where the more flight miles you rack up, the more internet service you get to use. This would not be a bad little phone if it was a company issued phone as they would pick up the charges.

The question is, will it have inflight GPS? That way you can see exactly how much farther you have to go, so no one will ever have to ask the pilot...Are we there yet?

It would be more interesting if they incorporate this ability within a satellite phone. With all the advances in phone service I am surprised Satellite is not the way they are all going.

Instead they are always looking for ways to charge people for another type of service. Just like the way airlines now charge you to use the restroom. Something such as this should be a feature on all carriers. Then incorporated into a package deal for those who spend their week in the air. I am sure it would only be a matter of a certain chip addition. Then hopefully only a matter of time.

Maybe they are just trying to hit that small group who's inflight thoughts about their cell phone addictions, include the phrase GO GO Gadget Phone! :)
