Sprint isn’t the only carrier that is performing a service for the public during Super Bowl XLVI. AT&T is also doing its part by making sure service volunteers are adequately equipped to help the estimated 150,000 visitors that will be wandering through downtown Indianapolis. Along with Samsung, AT&T has donated over 200 tablets that will act as information terminals for each service volunteer.

According to Fox 59, the tablets are equipped with apps that volunteers will use to guide members of the public to their respectful destinations. The apps will also be able to let service volunteers know if the visitors will have to wait in line when they finally get to where they want to go.

The specific tablet model wasn’t mentioned, but the only Samsung tablet AT&T sells is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 with 4G access at this time.

Downtown Indianapolis will play host to a number of Super Bowl related events such as the Super Bowl Village. The Super Bowl Village will have activities such as zip lines, a 100-yard long super dash, gaming stations and a pyrotechnic show.
