Wow, what a great idea, a self contained PTV! No need to wire up an airplane, it's got to be far more economical for them. This also sounds like something Southwest should look into, since they wouldn't have to retrofit their fleet and give passengers on longer flights an entertainment option.

I also wonder if the seats will be designed in a way that the device can be placed somewhere, or will the passenger have to put it on the tray table, or their lap? Looks like a great idea though, hopefully it will be free.
Next in line for PTV's is Zoom, and I hear Transat will have them too. That will leave Air Canada as one of the few without PTV's in most of their fleet. Hmmmmm.
