I think it's a great idea - it help teach them about how life in the real business world will be. As much as I love my BB, the fact that I am always wired and essentially 'open for business' 24/7 does take some getting used to.

At my business school we all had wi-fi enabled computers (with 802.11b covering most of our section of the campus), many assignments involved posting on bulletin boards/chat areas, projects were handed out online, etc. It was a great way for those who didn't really know too much about computers, networking, etc. coming in to get caught up. Giving out BB's is just another step in educating them for the real world....
