∞ iPhone rules Internet usage on airplanes

Apple leads in almost every market it enters these days, and now you can add another metric to the list: connecting to the Internet while flying.

[ad#Google Adsense 300x250 in story]A new survey, released by Wi-Fi networking company Gogo on Tuesday, shows that the iPhone accounts for 65 percent of mobile users accessing Gogo’s Wi-Fi service in air, while Android users account for just 12 percent. If you factor in the iPod touch, which also uses Apple’s iOS, that number rises to 80 percent usage.

Not a big surprise, BlackBerry users account for just 6 percent, while Windows and all other devices make up the remaining 2 percent of users.

The Gogo Wi-Fi service is available on AirTran Airways, Delta Air Lines, and Virgin America flights and on select Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, United Airlines, and US Airways flights.
