I am not going to say Nokia is going to do better but given their development team I would not count them as dead. As we have seen with Motorola you can go from near dead to near top of the market with the release of a hot phone. I think sometime in Q3 people will start placing their bets on if they think the next batch of Nokia smart phones will be successful. They still have positive brand recognition in most of the world for high quality phones (people even paying a premium in most places for them) and it defiantly sounds as though they are doing what they can to make sure these phones are successful.

So near term without a product that the market can be excited about the stock probably still has some ground to loss. Think in Aug/Sept I'll make my decision on this bet which should be shortly before we start hearing more about the batch of phones.
