||London 2012 Becomes More Advanced with Mobile Technology Integration
||The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games will utilize mobile technology for more comprehensive event coverage. This move is set to make this year's Olympics the most technologically advanced since its inception. The organisers spent GBP 500 million on setting up operations as it prepares for the extensive use of mobile technology all throughout the event.
Mobile technology has the power to reach out to the public in a matter of seconds. Smartphones and tablets are the main tools that are used to capture every moment and share it with the whole world. Social networking sites that can be accessed through these devices will update viewers about their favorite games and athletes. Spectators will also be able to share their once in a lifetime experiences with this media.
Mobile technology is considered to be the fastest and the most convenient mode of transmitting information. Users can stay in touch with the events and share the latest information about their favorite athletes with friends and family overseas. Mobile devices offer a lot of exciting options that allow users to share details of the events as quickly as possible.
The London Olympic Organising Committee promised the public that they will provide on-time and complete coverage of every game with the help of sophisticated Internet technology. The committee is expecting more than 200,000 spectators and workers to be present at this year's biggest sporting event. Websites that provide information about London 2012 are also gaining momentum. In fact, many believe that they will become the third most visited sites on the Internet behind Google and Amazon.
Mobile phone operator O2 is joining in the sporting event by providing all London residents and visitors with free Internet access. O2 launched the largest wi-fi zone in Europe. This service will be available in the boroughs of Chelsea, Kensington and Westminster. O2 aims to provide residents and tourists with the chance to share their once in a lifetime experience through pictures and updates posted on social networking sites. In addition, users will not have to worry about costly mobile charges. This is particularly beneficial for foreign visitors.
There are a number of social media feeds from fans, sponsors, organisers and athletes. Social media sites have become major support generators. These sites are expected to be flooded with pictures, videos and updates when London 2012 starts. Social network users will be able to share what they are seeing with their friends in real time. Mobile technology will change the Olympics experience as everyone gets minute by minute information. Twitter, Facebook and the other social media sites ensure sports fans that they will never miss a thing even if they are unable to make it to London. With mobile technology, they can have quick and easy access to the latest events, news and announcements.
Mobile apps are definitely great additions to this year's Olympics. Android phone users can view a comprehensive list of events through the Olympic Calendar app. With this, they can keep track of the schedule of events and never miss a single day. This is undeniably beneficial for participants, audience members and fans.
Another great London 2012 app is now gaining popularity across the U.K. The Coventry Olympics 2012 official mobile app was specially created as a guide to football events that will be held in the City of Coventry Stadium.
