For college students preparing to go back to school, it is essential to have the proper devices to succeed academically, make connections on campus and check in with family.
Apps and services like Skype provide an avenue for parents to spend time with their freshman away from home. Combined with the power of 4G LTE smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S III and DROID INCREDIBLE 4G LTE by HTC, parents can expect better connectivity and more time chatting.
When it comes time for schoolwork, E-reader apps like Kindle for Android have classic literature and new titles available for download, lightening the load to haul around campus and possibly saving a few dollars in the process.
Students with Android tablets, like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7, can use the QuickOffice Pro HD app to create and edit Microsoft Office documents fast with 4G LTE.
Some mobile hotspots, such as the VerizonJetpack MiFi 4620L, provide 4G LTE connectivity for up to 10 Wi-Fi-enabled devices so you and your dorm pals can have a shareable Wi-Fi signal wherever needed, turning the dining hall or quad into an impromptu study space.
