COM.Geo students to get early access to Windows Phone 8

We have been waiting for a long time to get our hands on the new Windows Phone 8 operating system by Microsoft. But it looks like we will be the last ones to try it out. Microsoft has offered internship jobs to Geo-Spatial Computer Science students, both undergraduate and graduate students. Yes, I know, they are lucky. Microsoft will be offering the apps developed by these students to the general public with the new operating system.

This is not the first time Microsoft has done this. We have already seen a very similar act by Microsoft on its desktop operating system where it showcased apps created by intern students. The new mobile operating system, the Windows Phone 8, is said to have new and improved Local Scout location feature, which means that there will be new API’s these computer science students can enjoy and write codes with.

The following is the ad and other details that the Remond based operating system giant has released:
