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'm not so sure about that. We recently switched the GSM provider at the office and had the opportunity to buy subsidized phones and the Lumia 800 was offered at 49€, but we still went for HTC Androids and iPhone at much higher prices. Would it have been running Android the situation certainly would have been different.

I agree with you. In my country, Nokia was supplanted by Samsung. And almost all Samsung had the Android name on it, that is, people will buy Samsung if it runs Android. If Nokia is to provide an Android powered device, those Samsung and Sony Android buyers will prefer Nokia, because Nokia is still the best in terms of hardware quality. Nokia is tested in almost two decades of hardware quality.
