British Airways has teamed up with Compaq to give customers the opportunity to try out the latest iPAQ Pocket PCs in the airline`s lounges at JFK.
Until the 18th November, British Airways passengers can connect to online services within the Terraces lounges at New York`s JFK Airport, thanks to innovative wireless technology from Compaq.
Connected to a Compaq wireless network, the iPAQ devices will give passengers real-time access to a virtual mobile office, enabling them to surf the Internet, send and receive e-mails, and make purchases online from anywhere in the lounge.
Passengers can borrow an iPAQ at the reception desk of the First and Terraces lounges. An on-site service desk is available for support in the lounges, with staff demonstrating the features of the iPAQ for those passengers wishing to use the service during their visit.
In addition to e-mail and Internet functionality, the iPAQ Pocket PC devices enable British Airways` customers to create Word and Excel documents, view and project PowerPoint presentations and video, download music and edit video and audio.
