Astros launch free Bluetooth Zones

Bluetooth Zone

Add Houston Astros to the list of professional sports teams who are becoming more technologically aware and finding practical ways to implement it.

Minute Maid Park will be the first U.S. park with “Bluetooth Zones”.

Gearlog.com says:

Visitors to Minute Maid Park (hey, it’s like Wrigley Field, but with orange juice) can can download still photos, animations, video and audio clips, ticket offers, interactive applications, and links all for free.

So ‘Stros fans, your Bluetooth-enabled phones and devices may come in handy at the park. Bring ’em with.

  1. someone left an astute comment on a forum on the subject:

    “When I go to a ballpark there is nothing I enjoy more than standing in the “Bluetooth Zone” so I can pick up clips of baseball to watch on my two inch Treo screen. Who goes to the ballpark to actually watch a live baseball game, anyway?”

    I can imagine some logistical headaches associated with this if it ever gets really popular.
