Nokia dominated the first decade of the cellphone boom, becoming a beloved brand around the world and pumping billions of dollars into the Finnish economy. Then, along came Steve Jobs and his iPhone in 2007 and ruined everything. Tens of thousands of jobs were lost. Nokia sold its phone business to Microsoft. And Finns took a serious hit to their country pride. But, in the years that have followed, Finland has started to revive its tech industry on the back of Supercell’s games, innovative foods and even satellites. In this episode of Hello World, Bloomberg Businessweek’s Ashlee Vance heads to Finland to see what life after Nokia looks like and to find out if the Finns really are that much better than the rest of us.
