All Seton Hall University Freshmen to Receive Lumia 900June 11, 2012 3 Comments
Seton Hall University has chosen the Lumia 900 as the device to give Freshmen coming in to the school next semester.
If that wasn’t enough, Setan Hall has plans to connect freshman before they even step foot on campus. In addition to the Lumia 900 hardware, Seton Hall students will have access to a special app. SHUMobile is an app that provides campus news feeds and maps. The app will also be customized for the incoming students with a “Freshman Experience component” that will have “social media integration and direct communication channels with freshman peers.”
David Middleton, Executive Director of the Center for Mobile Research and Innovation at Seton Hall was asked why they chose the Nokia Lumia 900. He replied that they wanted a device that would be solidly built to withstand the thrashing only a college student could give. He also noted that:
The Lumia 900 was the logical choice for our project as it provides deep integration with our Microsoft infrastructure, critical native academic (Office) and social applications (People Hub, live tiles) and extensive multimedia consumption and creation tools in a high quality form factor on the fastest cellular network.
I can see more and more Universities and businesses choose Windows Phone and that will only grown with Windows Phone 8 and future Nokia devices.
