‘Google Space’ booths ease the boredom for passengers at Heathrow

Google has recently installed a trial internet booth at London, UK's Heathrow airport, a pilot project it is calling 'Google Space'.

By CBR Staff Writer

Google has set up 10 Samsung laptops in the public lounge at the airport’s Terminal One, inviting waiting passengers to ease their boredom by going online and checking out the company’s latest pilot projects and other internet-related activities.

The move is reflective of Google’s interest in developing and popularizing wireless services, and could prove to be an interesting new marketing opportunity. If the trial at Heathrow proves successful, the search engine giant will look to expand the project, introducing the service to similar locations, such as doctor’s surgeries or train stations.

The project is anticipated to run until the end of December 2005.
