Video: Can Nokia regain its edge?

The following video is part of our “Motley Fool Conversations” series in which technology and media editor/analyst Andrew Tonner discusses topics across the investing world.

The long slide of the Finnish cellphone maker has been well-documented.

Last week was a painful reminder of Nokia’s strategy blunder with shares posting a 16% drop in a single day as the company announced that its quarterly performance will likely come in softer than expected and that it plans to lay off 10,000 workers. And despite this, the company has made serious strides in the last 12 months to once again move toward greener pastures. Can Nokia survive and eventually thrive in one of tech’s greatest growth markets? Listen on to find out.
