Seton Hall in New Jersey is offering a free Nokia Lumia 900 cell phone to all freshmen starting this September. The move is aimed at meeting the school’s mission of providing its students with state of the art technology to improve their experience at the school.
Seton Hall University already offers students the use of the SHUmobile application, which allows users to access useful school information by way of news feeds and maps. Something that new students will find easier with their new phone.
Since 1997 the school has been giving out laptops to new students and this new initiative is an extension of that. The Lumia 900 is a Windows-based phone that is able to complete the tasks required of it within an education environment, at the same time as being robust enough to withstand student life.
Assistant Vice President of Administration, David Middleton said; “By providing our new incoming students with the Nokia Lumia 900, Seton Hall University can expand our existing Windows services and infrastructure while providing a unique, high quality, dynamic and engaging mobile experience.”
AT&T is a part of the project and it is believed that they will be providing certain prepaid services, but the details of this particular deal have not been released.
