Whither Nokia?

Great piece on the Microsoft Nokia buyout:

If there is one upside, then I do believe that this just might be the best thing to happen to Finland and the Finnish startup scene. A lot of the talent draining out of Nokia will look for new opportunities in their areas of expertise — radio engineering, manipulating sensors and embedded systems. If anything, this is Finland’s big opportunity to become the epicenter of the Internet of Things.

For what it's worth I'm not sure where this leaves Microsoft either, other than with a big obvious candidate to be Ballmer's preferred replacement.
