By Jean Panke, Mobile Tech News -- Qualcomm successfully demonstrated in-cabin cell phone use on a recent American Airlines flight using a commercially available CDMA phone. Using an in-cabin 3G "picocell" network, passengers on the flight were able to make and receive calls just as if they were on the ground.

A small in-cabin CDMA cellular base station on the plane, that uses standard cellular communications, was connected to the worldwide terrestrial phone network by an air-to-ground Globalstar satellite link.

The flight originated out of Dallas/Forth Worth and lasted two hours. Passengers included media and government representatives.

An American Airlines spokesperson said that in-flight cell phone use is approximately 24 months away.
