    This is a two year project. Who knows what will happen in the end.

    Guess I won't being buying a Ford (Sync) or a Tesla (Android) or now flying on Delta.


     

    But you will still buy Apple devices built with Samsung parts?

    That is actually a concern.

     

    "Pull up the manual!!"

     

    "It won't turn on!"

     

    "Reboot it!!!!!"

     

    "I did and now it's all blue!!!!!!"

     

    "May day!!! May day!!!"

     

    Delta ejects 4500 Surface tablets over the ocean from 35,000 feet.

    Don't rule out Tesla. It was not Android in the end. Just Linux.

    Correct. It's Mercedes you need to hate on. And Audi. And Hyundai. Well, and Tesla a little bit.

    I didn't like Delta before and now I really don't. Not flying with them again. American Airways is the best domestic airline!

    I wonder if they paid Delta to take these at no cost?  MS might consider that a worthwhile advertising expense.

    I think you're right about this.

    Pilot to Tower: "Tower this is Delta flight 237, we're hearing strange sounds in the plane"

    Tower to Pilot: "Delta 237, please elaborate"

    Pilot to Tower: "It's hard to explain, every once in a while we hear a clickety-clack sound"

    Tower to Pilot: "Any other strange phenomena?"

    Pilot to Tower: "Apparently some of the passengers are dancing around during this clickety-clack sound. Surely it must be ok?"

    Tower to Pilot: "You have serious problems Delta 237! Turn around and land the plane. And whatever you do, do not rely on your instruction manual device!!!! There could be a Surface crash.......and don't call me Shirley"

    I think you need to pony up some facts. As far as I know there any no shipping ivi systems running Android. Try again? Plenty of aftermarket systems however, especially for the China market where it is the driving part that is the driver distraction and not the ivi system.
