PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia board chairman Risto Siilasmaa went on a Finnish television show, and stated that while he is confident in Windows Phone 8, the company does have a back-up plan if it doesn't work out. Speculation aplenty - what is this backup plan? The answer's pretty easy, if you ask me.

Why would they use lesser unknown mobile OS? Nokia Windows phones don't sell. It is not because people hate the Windows Phone OS and it's not because they hate the hardware. They are do not sell because the phones are not Android and they're not iOS. People don't want to buy into small, unknown and poorly supported ecosystems, in 2012 the established markets are too entrenched. Switching to another alternative OS would just place Nokia in exact the same position as they were before the switch to Windows Mobile.
