Aircell is one of the world’s leading provider of inflight connectivity, aims to carve a nice, big smile on your face if you are a frequent flier who cannot live without Internet connectivity even if you’re flying up in the air. Most airlines still do not offer Wi-Fi connectivity outside of the US while you’re flying, but for folks who are dying to check their Gmail accounts while in the air might just want to pick up the new Samsung Vibrant. Why, you ask? The answer is very simple – the Samsung Vibrant from T-Mobile USA will be accompanied by a special offer from Aircell, where you will be able to enjoy up to a months’ worth of free inflight Wi-Fi data access after you register. This offer is good until January 31st next year, so you still have a few more months to save up for a Samsung Vibrant if you think the jet-setting lifestyle is right up your alley in the months ahead.

This deal was available exclusively from T-Mobile from last week onwards, where each purchase of the Vibrant will be accompanied by a pre-installed entertainment package, not to mention the above Gogo Inflight Internet access that is made available on more than 3,500 daily flights in the Continental US across 1,000 commercial aircraft. Make no mistake about it, there will be additional routes and airline partners offering such a service in due time.

According to Aircell President and CEO, Michael Small, “As smartphones become more prevalent, we want to make it even easier for those traveling to access their email and favorite websites as well as Twitter and Facebook. We want to provide the Vibrant customers with a seamless way to continue their mobile experience at 30,000 feet.”

Just in case you were wondering what you would get with the Samsung Vibrant, this is a variant of the Samsung Galaxy S range which recently made a splash across different carriers Stateside, where they were known by different monikers depending on the carrier.
