WINDOWS PHONE users will soon be able to get their hands on the Olympics mobile app, the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games (LOCOG) has announced.
"Our drivers are slightly different from some commercial enterprises and our remit as an organising committee is to engage with as many people as possible through as many channels as possible, so that's driven our need to be as inclusive as possible," he said.
The INQUIRER contacted LOCOG for more details on when the app will become available but had received no reply at time of writing.
LOCOG will also launch a version of the application for BlackBerry customers in due course, Pennell confirmed.
He also revealed that the Technology Operations Centre (TOC), from which the Games are monitored and managed by all the major technology sponsors of the event, is set to become a 24/7 environment from Thursday as the countdown to the opening ceremony hits the two week mark.
Businesses are being urged to ensure that they prepare for the Games by working out the necessary contingency plans they will need so staff can remain productive, regardless of the issues an event might cause. µ
