NFL’s Buccaneers players get iPads to help their game

Here’s another example of the enterprise use of iPads, although it’s not quite a Fortune 500. No. It’s an NFL team — and rather confusingly (for anyone following RIM’s PlayBook), the iPads are being used to view playbooks (that is, the blow-by-blow game instructions) and videos of previous games.

Interesting. The piece below mentions that the team is using the Find My iPhone functionality to assure security — although I’m a big fan of that service offering, I can’t help but think it’s a little bit consumer-grade. What about something like MobileIron or Good?

The coaching staff of the National Football League’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers has equipped every one of their 90 players with an iPad 2 to view playbooks and watch videos.

Using the iPad 2 has allowed the staff to save time and paper, as players were previously provided with periodicals the size of a phone book. Now, the teams plays have been digitized and each player has been provided with an iPad, according to the St. Petersburg Times.
