As revenue plunges and share losses mount, worries about Nokia's (NOK) cash burn are growing: the company has gone through $2.7B over the last 5 quarters, a rate that, if continued, would wipe out its $4.9B in remaining reserves in less than 2 years. Moreover, Nokia has €1.25B ($1.59B) in 5.5% bonds due in 2014. Liquidity fears have resulted in Nokia's credit rating being downgraded to junk, and its 5-year CDS spread widening to 749 bp.
