But, soft! What light through yonder Windows breaks? Windows Mobile that is, as historic Stratford-on-Avon goes not only digital, but unwired to boot.

With wireless hotspots, provided by British Telecom, throughout, Stratford-on-Avon has essentially created a fully connected wireless touris..er..town. Visitors can rent networked PDAs for about $14.00 US per day, and take advantage of online interactive maps and attraction guides, and go on their own guided walking tours.
