"Exciting New Digital Media World is Emirates latest Destination"

"The Dubai-based airline’s passengers - who already enjoy more than 600 channels of inflight entertainment on its award-winning ice system - will soon have one of the world’s first onboard iPod integrations, enabling them to use the portable devices to enjoy their own choice of music and videos, including full-length feature films, on their seat-back screens.

The new digital media destination has been announced a week after Emirates revealed it will be the world's first airline to offer its passengers inflight mobile phone use across its entire fleet.

Emirates’ integrated iPod seat connection is scheduled for introduction from mid-2007. It will also provide a constant power source to ensure that passengers’ iPods are charged for the duration of their flights."Collapse )
