iPhones, iPods for Abilene

Abilene Christian University, based in Abilene, Texas, is giving away new Apple handhelds to incoming students this weekend, writes the Dallas Morning News. Fulfilling an earlier announcement, over 950 freshmen for the 2008-2009 school year will receive either an iPod touch or an iPhone 3G, in what the university claims is the largest educational giveaway of Apple mobiles to date. In the case of the iPhones, students will only get an 8GB model, and will have to arrange their own contracts with AT&T.

The handout is meant not only as a lure to come to the Christian school, but as a tool for looking up maps and class schedules, as well as taking real-time surveys during lectures. ACU is also hosting representatives from both Apple and AT&T this weekend, as well as companies like Alcatel-Lucent.
