There's major change in the wind at Nokia .

In by far the boldest move the company's made since it decided to ditch its struggling Symbian platform in favor of Microsoft's Windows Phone OS, the Finnish company recently announced it would sell its entire handset division to Microsoft. This one move alone will bid adieu to more than one-third of Nokia's employees and around half its total revenue.

Suffice to say, this will leave the new Nokia looking drastically different, although that isn't necessarily a bad thing. In fact, the company is taking several interesting steps into growth markets that offer major potential payoffs. Nokia's chairman recently detailed the company's future strategy in an interview, which Fool contributor Andrew Tonner examines in greater detail in the video below.
