Medical students may be wise to sell used mobile

29 September 2010 — 12:14 PM

Students in Leeds are benefiting from the educational capability of the iPhone.

Medical students across the country could sell their mobile phones and follow the example of Leeds University by buying an Apple iPhone.

The West Yorkshire education institution has provided those studying to become doctors with the handset, from which they can access online text books.

Not only do the apps store a wealth of information for students to learn from, the iPhone is a way for the university to keep in contact with its attendees.

Although the devices are due to be returned when graduates leave Leeds, they may provide an incentive to head to the city for university in the first place, with the promise of a snazzy mobile part of the deal.

Alternatively, those studying elsewhere may find selling a used mobile and investing in an iPhone can help them with their studies too.

On June 24th, Apple released its latest version of the model, the iPhone 4, which sold some 1.7 million units in its first three days on the market.

Julie Snape, head of marketing at Envirofone, says: "This is a fantastic development for students. If you’re at uni and don't fancy lugging heavy books round, why not upgrade your phone? You could trade-in your old handset for cash."
