The event featured all kinds of great tech that would be perfect for students of all ages.
Following the event, Big Bro was given the opportunity to test out a Smart Phone, The Microsoft Lumia 640XL. He tried it out for over a week.
Here are some of his comments about the phone:
The Microsoft Lumia 640 XL Smart Phone was very smooth, and ergonomic. It was sturdy but yet light.
Also, the Cortana feature was excellent, because it easily recognized my voice and successfully did what I asked it to do.
I loved the over-sized display screen and also, the clock feature.
It also had a very nice camera that helped me to take great photos.
All in all, I think that it would be an awesome phone for anybody, especially for middle school aged kids like me! Thanks AT&T and Microsoft for letting me test out this cool phone!
In addition to Big Bro testing out the Microsoft Lumia 640XL, both boys were also given the opportunity to test out the AT&T Google VR that was developed to be a part of the AT&T #ItCanWait Campaign.
If you have not viewed this campaign, it is a powerful message to all people about the importance of not texting and driving.
Little Bro had this to say about his experience using the Google #VR #ItCanWait viewer:
I liked how you can walk around the world but stay in your home. I was able to see streets in Rome, Paris, and New York. It is cool as you can see so much and it was easy to use.
My favorite thing to see was the Eiffel Tower.
We also watched the #ItCanWait Campaign by AT&T. That was kind of scary, but it shows how important it is for big people who are driving to not try to do other things other than drive. Texting or playing on your phone is not what they are supposed to do. I think that the #ItCanWait Campaign is great to help people remember how to be safe.
