NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- It's hard to fault investors for having abandoned phone giant Nokia (NOK - Get Report) and what was once a prominent company -- one that was in a fast-growing market. With chronic self-inflicted wounds, the company essentially handed over the phone market to Apple (AAPL - Get Report) and Samsung. But with renewed excitement stemming from Nokia's Lumia 920 running on Microsoft's (MSFT - Get Report) Windows Phone 8, investors want to know does Nokia now deserve a second look?For Nokia, I'd like to think that the company can revive its fortunes with its new phone, but it's hard to discuss the prospects of the Lumia 920 without first considering its predecessor, the Lumia 900 -- particularly for how the company botched the launch. After getting its tail kicked by Research in Motion's (RIMM) BlackBerry, which then gave way to Apple's iPhone, Nokia needed a spark.
