T-Mobile on Friday announced a partnership with the Angels to provide fans with a tablet rental program, allowing fans to watch TV, read magazines, chat with friends and hopefully not get hit in the face by a foul ball.
For $10 fans will be able to rent either a T-Mobile G-Slate or a Samsung Galaxy Tab and to pretty much ignore the game and surf the web over a 4g mobile connection from the comfort of their seats at Angel Stadium. Included: a free game-day program optimized for the tablet!
The Angels have the fifth-highest attendance in the major leagues so far this year, averaging 86 percent of seats sold per game. The team is hanging in on the field as well, 3 games behind the AL West-leading Rangers. And hey, the team's doing everything it can to fill seats, including 5 post-game concerts (of which three remain) including Ludacris on August 6.
