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.

I think there's room for one more ecosystem.


On the contrary - multiple ecosystems might be good for competition, but from a developer point of view, two target platforms is already one more than ideal.

The failure of WP7 isn't entirely because of bad tools - it's also because many developers can't be bothered even checking out what those tools might be like, because they've no interest in supporting a platform that nobody uses.
