Phoenix Suns pick Verizon's 4G Samsung Galaxy Tab over iPad

Verizon and Samsung jointly announced today that the Phoenix Suns will be the first NBA franchise to integrate the usage of wireless tablets in both its on-court and off-court operations. And that wireless tablet will be Verizon's 4G LTE Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

The LTE-enabled Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be given to each Suns player complete with the team's playbook, video from team practices and games, and scouting reports on opponents. It will also be easier for the team to manage their master itinerary and other travel plans.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab will also be used by the Suns throughout US Airways Center on game-nights such as for showing clients interactive views of game seating, presentations for season ticketholders, and other in-game promotions. The tablets will also be integrated into the Suns' TV and radio broadcasts as a way to interact with digital fans via social media.
