Hello friends,

 

I have ready the tickets to fly to Brazil and a friend told me that he heard somewhere that FIFA will not be allowing people to enter the stadiums with tablets or phones from any different brand, but samsung only.

 

Is that true?

 

Just wondering, because Samsung is sponsoring something... ?

I am going to say no, I have no clue about anything related to this but it would be VERY difficult to manage.

Obviously complete nonsense. Do you really need asking?

At the very worst it'll be like the Olympics, where inside a certain radius they didn't allow businesses that weren't on the list to operate (even going as far as "disabling" bank machines that weren't managed by companies on the approved list).

I am sure thats absolute nonsense. Think of how many iDevice users they would alienate. They would lose truck loads of money.

If you read the article they prohibit ALL tablets not just certain ones.

 

English translation of the link above:

 

 

SAN PABLO - FIFA reported on its official website a Code of Conduct in the stadium that determines what the fan may or may not lead to the World Cup in Brazil.

This is a stupid list, and one of the reasons i hate certain events, why is it considered dangerous to take my own drinks into the stadium? Why can't I record video?
