As we all are well-aware, it’s back to school time. This means it’s the perfect time to purchase a new cell phone and get new apps to help your student become more productive. For instance, AT&T is currently running a sweet deal on the HTC One X for only $99! If you recall, I became a fan of HTC phones with my HTC One S Cell Phone review and HTC EVO 4G LTE Cell Phone review this summer. I imagine this new phone is just as awesome. Check it out!
Currently on sale for just $99.99 as part of AT&T’s back-to-school promotion, the HTC One X runs the latest version of Android and HTC Sense, as well as features a beautiful white color finish and 4.7-inch HD display. Its 8-megapixel camera comes equipped with HTC ImageSense, improving every part of the camera including the lens, sensor and software. The HTC One X also offers 1080p HD video recording, with the ability to take photos while capturing video. With Beats By Dr. Dre Audio integration, HTC One X customers can enjoy an enhanced sound experience when listening to music, watching movies or playing video games. Access to AT&T’s speedy 4G LTE network paired with a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor make this smartphone super-fast.
Now, I mentioned that there are several great apps for students these days. So, here is a top 10 list of apps perfect for students.
