Starting today, the latest generation tablet with TIM ultrafast 4G LTE and advanced applications can be booked for Expo 2015 to be used as an innovative multimedia guide both inside and outside the Expo Site

The launch of TIM2go (www.tim2go.tim.it), the new tablet sharing experience created by TIM in collaboration with Samsung, is designed to make the experience of visiting Expo 2015 unforgettable. 

The service, which can be booked from today, includes rental of a Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4" tablet with TIM's unlimited ultrafast 4G LTE connectivity and a dedicated selection of exclusive on demand video content and apps, free of charge. With the tablet, visitors will have access to a tool that can be used both inside and outside the Expo area, enabling them to leave maps, tourist guides, cameras and videorecorders at home. Thanks to the installed applications, which make use of innovative technologies, it will be possible to enrich tours of the site with animations and multimedia content.

The TIM2go application has been specifically designed to make the visitor experience more engaging through the use of a rich catalogue of video content, participation in dedicated contests and access to live events on the site. The application also allows users to create and share their own personal digital record thanks to the availability of 5GB of Cloud space: photographs, videoclips and itineraries explored with the tablet will populate the "My visit" section that users can share with their contacts, also after their visit.

Through the online booking system, users can choose where to pick up their tablet, how long they want to use it for and where to return it, thus saving money and ensuring that the device is ready for them as soon as they arrive, using the "fast line". Users can also pick up their tablet inside the Expo site, in the dedicated service points at the East and West accesses, the TIM shop in Piazza Cordusio in Milan city centre or at Linate airport. When booking, users can also choose to return the tablet to a different service point at no additional cost.

The tablet sharing service is available for up to 7 days, and the daily cost decreases with the number of days' rental, starting from 10 euros per day if booked through the website, or 15 euros if rented at a service point.
