New iPad Could Change
Way Sports Is Consumed
The tech world is still trying to wrap its head around Apple's new iPad, the long-awaited mobile tablet unveiled yesterday to much fanfare, but one thing appears certain: the iPad is likely to have a huge impact on the way we consume sports. The device gets front-page treatment in all the major dailies, sharing headlines with President Obama's State of the Union address. But in addition to the hype for its "gamechanging" versatility, it is the iPad's potential for sports integration that draws our attention. Convergence Sports & Media President Tom Richardson says, “We've seen what's happened with the iPhone and a 3-inch screen. Can you imagine the possibilities with the larger real estate?" Apple's dedication to protecting rightsholders clearly resonates with some partners, particularly MLBAM, which plans to stream live MLB games through the new device. But will the $499 base price hurt sales?
