NBA team issues Android tablets as playbooks The Phoenix Suns have become the first NBA team to license Android tablets across all the company's operations.
In an agreement with Verizon Wireless and Samsung Mobile, the Suns will use the Galaxy Tab 10.1 as playbooks on the court (and off) and also in their business operations.

The press release says the team will "utilize the tablet throughout US Airways Center on game-nights for more effective activation related to Suns partner initiatives, as well as showing prospective Suns ticket holders an interactive view of seats from anywhere in the arena."

Adds Suns President Brad Casper: "Our organization has always placed a priority on remaining at the forefront of digital innovation within the sports industry. Utilizing the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network to integrate the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 into our daily operations is yet another great digital milestone for the Suns."

The Tab 10.1 has 4G LTE support, a WXGA 1280 x 800 resolution display, 1GHz dual-core processor, dual cameras and runs on Android 3.2.
