Seton Hill University, a Catholic liberal arts school in Pennsylvania, has announced that starting this fall, every full-time student will get an iPad.
Students will be able to download their textbooks to their iPads from the iBook Store. In addition, iPads can be used as phones and for air and file sharing, as well as note-taking.
Fancy. Not sure where they get the idea that an iPad can be used as a phone, but we'll let that slide for now.
Needless to say, if Apple manages to strike deals like this with a good number of schools, the iPad's success will be fairly well assured. The company continues to gain ground with students extremely quickly, ensuring that schools all over the country are churning out Mac/iPhone/iPad-addicted graduates at a pretty heady clip.
