UM B-School Hands Out BlackBerries

Posted on Friday 27 August 2004

The business school at the University of Maryland has accepted a gift of 400 or so BlackBerry handhelds from Nextel and will equip its students, faculty and some staff members with the devices. The university will pick up the cost of data services but the students will be expected to pay for voice traffic, presumably including Nextel’s PTT service. The business school is developing applications so that students can access course assignments, grades, class rosters and other school information through an online course development tool; the press release also cites some research that the university will perform as part of its relationship with Nextel.
