Softbank Mobile, Japan’s only cellphone operator dealing with iPhone 3G,  and Aoyama Gakuin University announced on Friday that they would distribute the handset to all students studying at the university’s school of social informatics[J].    The students are allowed to use it for attendance reporting, lecture podcasting and having online examination.
When a student submits his/her class attending to the university’s office with the iPhone 3G, it attaches GPS-based location data and prevents answering the roll call for another to get a credit.
During their universityhood of four years, the students jointly make plans to develop a new iPhone app contributing to the local community in their first year and second year.   Then they attempt to develop an app and put it at the AppStore in the third year and thereafter.
