iPhones To Be Given Out To 520 Medical Students

News has come through today of some 520 fourth and fifth year medical students at the University of Leeds, now being issued with free iPhones to help them with their studies. Since its release a few months ago, the Apple iPhone has been one of the hottest mobile phones to be purchased this year. Along with this, the ever increasing apps available to users are bound to be hit with students.

When Christina at Mashable reported on this, the medical students will be handed a 16GB iPhone 3GS for the rest of their time spent at the University. The handset will come fully equipped with apps as well as textbooks, to enable learners to get the most out of their studies. Students will also be given the opportunity to download extra apps from the App Store.

Although this is the first time that the University of Leeds has used this new learning concept, at the “Ohio State University College of Medicine”, they to, are using the iPod touch and iPhone.
