The Light at the End of Nokia's Tunnel

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which advisor Charly Travers discusses topics around the investing world.

Nokia's earnings were bleak as the company makes the painful transition from its Symbian operating system to its lineup of Lumia phones in partnership with Microsoft. While Nokia's results are pressuring its stock and causing many investors to wonder whether the company has a future at all, Charly believes there is light at the end of the tunnel, as long as the company can build off the momentum it has gained this month with the launch of the well-received Lumia 900 on AT&T's network.

The emergence of mobile computing isn't a new story, but there's still plenty of opportunity for savvy investors to cash in on this once-in-a-lifetime trend. We already know many of the largest players well, but some of the best ways to play this shift are still under the radar. To expose our readers to these companies, the Fool recently wrote a free report detailing three unknown ways to play the mobile revolution. We made it absolutely free to our readers as well, so check out "3 Hidden Winners of the iPhone, iPad, and Android Revolution."

    Nokia will be just fine only if they are able to sell a substantial number of units and become a 3 major player in the current 2 horse race. If the Windows Phone 8 turns out to be like the Zune (too little, too late), then Nokia may go down like RIM is today with no clear path in sight. They have chosen to not compete with Apple on the high-end phone and will face competition on the lower end against the plethora of lower priced Android phones in the market. Only time will tell.

    I'm surprised Microsoft hasn't been touting direct editing of MS Office documents on their Windows Phone platform as surely that would be a key differentiator from the pack.

    This may look bad for Nokia. But what it really is nothing than a buying opportunity for its shares. A company like Nokia will only rebound. Although it might take a moment, it will still rebound, or even be bought out
