A new era is set to hit camp Nokia as Stephen Elop, Nokia’s new CEO, sends out an epic 1300 word internal memo to employees regarding the current turmoil Nokia is in. He discusses how Nokia needs to drastically improve in order to catch up with the fast-paced mobile industry, and take a leap of faith into the unknown for a new competitive future. I have to say that the content of this memo is what analysts and investors have been trying to tell Nokia for a very long time and its great to see something is finally going to be done. This Friday (11th February), Nokia will reveal its plans and strategy at Capital Markets Day and I cannot wait to hear what Nokia will announce. Check out the full memo after the break.
