What better reason could there be to carry on with an education at college than getting your hands on a hot new smartphone like the Nokia Lumia 900? According to Engadget, that is what all new freshmen will get upon their orientation.
Nokia Lumia 900 for New Jersey Seton Hall University students
The college will be handing out the handsets to students at the New Jersey Seton Hall University as a way of integrating technology with the curriculum of the school. This is not the first time that a device has been given away to entice students to a particular college or school, it has also happened with the iPad and the iPhone.
Officials at the college are hoping that the smartphones will become one of the key components of student life. The phone will have the SHUmobile app installed on it along with the Freshman Experience hub. This allows freshman to interact with others through direct messages and social media. It also allows them to discover peer academic advisors and find out about housing situations along with letting them find out more about roommates.
Students who are given the Nokia Lumia 900 will have pre-paid access through AT&T throughout the fall semester. Following this they will then have to pay the bill themselves or make use of Wi-Fi to keep in touch.
