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.

If Nokia puts Android on their phones (and don't screw it up completely), my next phone will be a Nokia. If they don't, I'll go somewhere else. Simple as that, and I hardly think I'm alone in this thinking.

Yes, I want another Linux-based phone OS to succeed, like MeeGo, Tizen or WebOS.
But right now, none of them have any marketshare, and before they do, they will lack severely in content, which puts me and a lot of other people off.
Just like WP7/8 has and will do.
Catch 22? Yes, but it's the reality.
