Samsung bringing its familiar charging stations to colleges around the U.S.


Well here’s ones way to get your “brand” out there. Samsung will install its mobile chargers (you might have seen them at airports here and there) at 15 colleges around the U.S. That’s just step one. Step two is installing said chargers at more than 50 colleges around the country.

There’s no real catch, I suppose: Samsung gets to put its brand in a terribly helpful manner in front of many pairs of eyes.

The charger will first be installed at Louisiana Tech, Northern Iowa University, Northwestern University, San Diego State University, Texas Tech University, the University of Colorado at Boulder, the University of Miami, the University of Minnesota, the University of Texas at Dallas, and the University of New Mexico.

Again, this is just the first wave of such installations. Samsung has it in its plans to install the chargers at more than 50 colleges and universities around the country in the future.

I can’t think of a single bad thing to say here. You never used to be able to find a cellphone charger when you needed one, and now one will be next to the vending machine at the student center. Handy, if nothing else.
