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.

Tomorrow may be the last day to snag the early bird upgrade price on Windows 8 Pro, but students have a bit of wiggle room going forward.

For whatever reason if you were planning on upgrading your PC to Windows 8 Pro, you should do it now and lock in that sweet $40 upgrade fee, because it goes up to $200 for Pro. However, students can wing it for $69.99 starting February 1st in the US with staggered roll outs depending on your location.

Windows Phone Central App Roundup: Football Apps

Windows Phone Central's Football App Roundup

Football season is upon us and there are plenty of Windows Phone apps to help bring all the gridiron action to our phones. Sure, you have sports apps such as ESPN and Score Mobile that will bring your all the scores, news and videos from the sports world but what about those that just focus on football?

We've collected a handful of apps that place football center stage. We've got a few professional football apps and a few college oriented apps for those who prefer the NCAA over the NFL. We even toss in a football app for those who see football in a different light.

As always, if you have a favorite football app that didn't make it to the roundup, sound off in the comments section and share.

Seton Hall University to provide Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phones to incoming Freshman

If you are an incoming freshman at Seton Hall University, it looks like you'll be getting a brand new Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone to help you make it through college.

Nokia, along with AT&T, Microsoft and Seton Hall University today announced that the entire class of 2016 will receive the Lumia 900 to support the University's mission of providing state of the art technology tools to enhance the student's college experience. This initiative started in 1997 to provide mobile technology to its students. All in all, it sounds like a very attractive initiative by all involved.  

David Middleton, Seton Hall's Executive Director for the Center for Mobile Research & Innovation, noted,

"Nokia has a long history of innovation and their partnership with Microsoft allows us to extend the core academic and community resources of the University into the pocket of our students. By providing our new incoming students with the Nokia Lumia 900, Seton Hall University can expand our existing Windows services and infrastructure while providing a unique, high quality, dynamic and engaging mobile experience."

In addition to the new Windows Phones, students will have access to the SHUmobile app that provides access to campus news feeds, directories, maps and other University resources.   

Seton Hall University is a private university located in South Orange, New Jersey. Annual enrollment is 5,300 undergraduate students. While no enrollment numbers were provided, average freshmen enrollment is approximately 1,100 students.
