Fat Fingered Sumo Wrestlers Given iPads

The Japan Sumo Association is handing out about 60 iPads to training stables to help the wrestlers communicate because their fingers are too fat to use a regular mobile phone. From the article: “The iPad was chosen because the sumo association believed the device was big enough to cater to wrestler’s fat fingers, unlike the smaller keys on mobile phones, according to reports.”
