From ITWeek:

Next week’s Wimbledon tennis championships will trial tablet PC technology to improve its real-time statistics service, as well as extending the use of WiFi networking to enhance security.

Tournament host the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC) has worked with IT partner IBM for several years on capturing match statistics, feeding updates to its web site and to the information system that supports broadcasters.


The process uses specially-designed keyboards, but this year is testing tablet PCs from supplier Lenovo.
