Another airline adopts tablets … but an HP tablet?

From c|net:

Windows 8 tablets to be handed out to Emirates’ flight crew

The luxury airline announces that it is delivering 1,000 HP ElitePad 900 tablets to its flight attendants, which will run on Windows 8 and come with a built-in airline-specific business app.

Interesting choice.  I would have expected an iPad as first choice, or maybe a Microsoft Surface.  I have to wonder how tablet like the custom app will be, or whether it will look more like a windows desktop app…
