Next up for Nokia

The Economist has explored Nokia's chances of making a comeback from the bits it's not selling to Microsoft…

A little while back I write something exploring how interesting the post-mobile phone Nokia could end up being.

Well, The Economist has explored Nokia’s future in significantly more detail:

Nokia is also keen to talk up its other two businesses. The larger is HERE, its highly regarded maps division, which has most of the market for navigation systems built into cars. The smaller, Advanced Technologies, will have the job of licensing Nokia’s thousands of patents and coming up with more bright ideas. Risto Siilasmaa, the chairman and acting chief executive, calls it “our innovation engine”. Most of the uncertainty about Nokia’s future has to do with how well this engine fires.

Can the Finnish company prove that big companies can pivot, too?

We’ll be watching with interest…
