I could see the point in handing out tablets or laptops for schooling, but cell phones? Am I the only one that'll just tinker around on the damn thing during class and have it provide no educational value?

Something tells me that the school's administration predicted those problems and made sure that ATT and Nokia tailored the lumias to address these issues. A lot like how most company desktops/laptops don't allow you to install software and access some forms of social media.

Lumia 900 was the highest rated phone 3 months ago! That's not from me, that's from Siri! LOL!

By the way, If Seton Hall gives away Nokia Lumia WP8 units this fall, I'll totally enrol there! LOL!

Wow. Giving free Lumia 900 for the students. It sounds unfair for me. Why can't I receive one from my college? By the way, Windows phone OS is great for school use but not entertainment (currently)

I would be a little pissed that I am probably paying more in tuition than the past few years of Freshmen yet I am getting the Lumia as opposed to a tablet.

BTW they aren't "free". They are included in tuition.
