This morning, Nokia has unveiled their latest app to help young college graduates find pre-job placement through an app called Internships Lens. Built off of their previous effort called JobLens, Internship Lens will help recent college grads find that work experience in their immediate area and tuned for their academic training.

The app is part of a partnership between Nokia and Internships.com, which is the world’s largest database on those opportunities and it will be made available today for those in the US who also own a Nokia Lumia Windows Phone.

This morning, Nokia has sent out press invites and announced on their Facebook page their October 22nd event, now dubbed Nokia World. While we knew previously that the event was to take place on that date, after being postponed from late September, we did not know the location.

Nokia will reportedly unveil the 6-inch Lumia 1520 and the Windows 8.1 RT tablet, the Lumia 2520, in Abu Dhabi, located in the United Arab Emirates. The location is certainly unusual for them as traditionally Nokia has announced new devices in New York or London.

Along with the other big news from Microsoft today, troubled smartphone company BlackBerry was snapped up by Fairfax Financial—or at least they have signed a letter of intent to do so. That means any dreams (or nightmare) of a Microsoft acquisition can be put to rest.

We won’t go too deep into the news, as we have a sister site called CrackBerry for that, but for now we’ll just summarize what it all means.

The Lumia 1020 by Nokia is a premium smartphone. So premium that it has a rather expensive price tag. For the cost you're getting a 41MP camera and the latest innovations running on Windows Phone 8. O2 and Telefonica will be sporting the exclusive 64GB variant, but EE has now got the 32GB version available in black on its website, starting from just £9.99 when taken out with a contract.

You can now add 200GB to your SkyDrive account

The SkyDrive team has been killing it lately. Sure there was the whole needing to change the name setback, but other than that it’s been a rosy year. Earlier in May, it hit the 250 million customer mark, which is very impressive. Earlier today, Microsoft announced that anyone who buys a Surface 2 or Surface Pro 2 will get 200GB of SkyDrive storage for two years. That 200GB option has been extended to everyone with a new pricing tier on SkyDrive.

With that in mind, it’s great to see the Nokia Lumia 925 finally getting ready to launch there.

One of the many legal battles involving smartphone manufacturers is Nokia suing HTC over several patent infringements. Nokia filed a complaint with the International Trade Commission (ITC) claiming HTC encroached on several patents with their Android based devices. 

Through the course of the litigation several of the claims were dropped leaving three patent claims to be ruled on. An Administrative Law Judge with the ITC has issued a preliminary ruling against HTC on two of the three remaining patent claims which very well could lead to a U.S. import ban against HTC.
