Incoming freshmen students at Seton Hall University will receive a new Lumia 900 handset courtesy of Nokia. The campaign is a part of Seton Hall’s Mobile Computing Initiative. It launched in coordination with Nokia, AT&T, and Microsoft. The phones will come equipped with Windows Phone 7.5 and an enhanced version of SHUmobile, which is an app that provides students with campus maps, directories, and news feeds.
The phones will also give the freshmen access to a new “Freshman Experience” component that lets them directly communicate with peers, roommates, and advisors. Seton Hall will use Nokia’s analytics tools to create polls to learn how students are using the device for everyday life on campus.
