Consumers are using the iPad at work, in schools and at home but the Denver Broncos NFL team have decided to use Apple’s tablet in its locker rooms, too. The team recently switched out its 500-page playbook for 64GB versions of Apple’s new iPad on Verizon and is currently preparing one for each player and the coaching staff, the Denver Post said Monday.
“The advantage is that when they leave the building, they can take everything home with them very easily and watch tape at night and review the game plan installation,” Denver Broncos general manager Brian Xanders said. “This is their full-time job — to prepare and do whatever they can to help us win each week.”
The iPads will come preloaded with a PlayerLync application that will allow coaches to push out new plays to the team over-the-air, decreasing the team’s dependence on paper. The Broncos will also provide videos and other content to players.
