So: yay! Although it's not quite an absolutist decision; there are still some notable gadget restrictions. The airlines will have to prove to the FAA that their planes won't receive interference from gadgets before they can clear them for full-flight use, so when you'll be legally allowed to use your gadgets will still vary by what airline you're flying. Internet use on mobile devices will still be prohibited below 10,000 feet, too, so you'll still have to switch to airplane mode. (Finally, "airplane mode" is an acceptable mode for a flight.) Actually talking on your phone will also remain banned.
