Cricket World Cup is one of the most watched sporting events in the world. In 2011, the Cricket World Cup garnered 2.2 billion TV viewers, putting it in third behind the FIFA World Cup and the Summer Olympics.
Australian cricket legend and now cricket commentator, Mark ‘Tubby’ Taylor, is using a BlackBerry Passport to report on the matches on TV.
The Australian national team, which Taylor used to captain, plays rival cricket superpower, India, today at 2:30pm (AEST) for a spot in the World Cup finals.
Taylor, really likes the BlackBerry Passport, telling BlackBerry in Australia that it’s, “handy to have so much info at my fingertips.”
BlackBerry says, “Taylor is not the only cricket star who loves BlackBerry Passport – so does English cricketer and businessman Kevin Pietersen. The Passport also helps keep Toronto Raptors (NBA) general manager Masai Ujiri on the ball.And Canadian tennis star Milos Raonic travels the globe with his BlackBerry Passport.
“Besides sports and entertainment luminaries, there are also plenty of power professionals that rely on their BlackBerry Passport, including celebrity chef Tyler Florence, this senior hospital executive, regional IT manager,manufacturing executive, non-profit founder, software engineer, tech journalist, legal administrator, pharmaceutical CEO, software manager, insurance salesman, and these workers from multiple industries.”
It makes perfect sense that all of these power users are fans of the Passport. It truly is the epitome of optimal mobile computing (I use it too). See more of what we think of the device in our BlackBerry Passport review.
