There is an air of excitement with the news released last week that the FAA will not allow tablets and e-Readers on flights and allow us to read whenever we want. Most airlines will have major routes all setup by the end of the year. Sony has announced it has created a new section or eBooks that take between six and eight hours to read.
Reader Store, Sony’s home for eBooks, applauds the FAA for making life for readers a whole lot better with a ruling allowing airline passengers to enjoy their eBooks from gate to gate. “It is safe to read downloaded materials like e-books and calendars, and also to play games.” Michael Huerta, FAA administrator told reporters at Reagan National Airport.
