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.

Windows Phone May Still Be A Winner

While Android would probably make the most business sense, I think another Android device on the market is just that...another android device.

I think what will grow the Windows Phone 8 market is when Surface, Windows 8, XBox, and Windows Phone 8 are all out and about. I think once people start to see a complete eco system out there, Windows Phone 8 will be more attractive. Right now it seems that Windows Phone just sticks out like a sore thumb in the line up of other things. Plus I think once it gets to a point to where I can install a metro app on my desktop and the mobile version gets installed on my phone at the same time...that would attract people. Assuming the necessary apps get ported to Win8/WP8 of course.
