Motivations to take a Microsoft-owned Nokia seriously

Steve Ballmer’s out, Microsoft bought Nokia’s phone division, and Nokia’s chief, Stephen Elop is rumored to be a likely Ballmer replacement. No one knows for sure what is going on behind the closed doors of this once great giant, but what is evident, is it seems newly reinvigorated with a series of big ideas. And it is likely that is exactly why Microsoft was interested in the first place.

And also last week, Nokia released the free Internship Lens, a Windows-based mobile app that lets users see where internships are in augmented reality, simply by pointing the phone’s camera at a building. The app lists 75,000 internships from 45,000 companies across the United States through a partnership with internship listings site Internships.com, according to a Reuters report.

Last week, the FCC approved a Nokia tablet with AT&T and Verizon LTE, according to a report by Engadget. The device, at least for now called the RX-114, could be ready for public viewing as soon as the Nokia World conference in Abu Dhabi, on October 22, according to the report.
