Delta To Give Surface Tablets To Pilots

27 September 2013

Windows IT Pro:

I wrote about the original Delta deal in Delta Equips 19,000 Flight Attendants with Windows Phone Handsets, but added an exclusive: Delta’s pilots would soon be given Windows tablets as well. What I didn’t reveal at the time was that Delta originally planned to go with Nokia for the tablets as well: That firm was set to launch its long-awaited Sirius tablet, which would run Windows RT, by the end of October.

But now the plans have changed: Delta’s pilots will be given Surface 2 tablets instead.

I think that’s a pretty big indicator that Nokia isn’t making a Sirius tablet anymore.
