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 you ask me, Microsoft killed killed the platform by announcing that the current phones won't be supported by the upcoming Windows Phone 8. Who in his right mind, will want to buy a current Windows Phone like the Lumia only to be limited to version 7.x?

At least, Microsoft needs to support the current phone. Why will it be so hard to do so? Is the NT kernel system demanding for the current Windows Phones? We will never know unfortunately.
