Apple signs up six airlines for in-seat iPod integration

Apple has already seen iPod integration reach 70% with new automobiles being introduced in the United States these days, but the company still has much loftier goals in mind. The company is now looking to take iPod integration to the skies and has signed up major airlines to spread more iPod lovin’.

In an announcement made today, Air France, Continental, Delta, Emirates, KLM and United stated that they will offer iPod integration in individual seats. “There is no better traveling companion than an iPod, and now travelers can power their iPods during flight and even watch their iPod movies and TV shows on their seat back displays,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide iPod Product Marketing.

Apple, which has sold nearly 70 million iPods since its 2001 introduction, says that the in-flight iPod connectivity will be available starting in mid-2007.

Apple's iPod commands over 75% of the digital audio player market and has lead a pretty easy life as far as competition goes. Microsoft's newly released Zune looks to change matters though with a 3" color screen, 30GB hard drive, FM radio support and WiFi sharing.
