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.

Lots of comments about WP failing because it can't compete with Android and iOS for developers of applications. - poorly developed ecosystem etc.

Surely that's the point of WP8 and Metro? Metro Apps that are made for the desktop and Windows 8 will be easily convertible to WP8 on a Windows smart phone. The phone will then be able to leverage its position using MS dominant position on the desktop.
