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.

Right now Samsung rules the roost on Android, but I remember when their phones were a joke compared to the HTCs in Europe or Droids in the US. Right now I can't even find a single RAZR or RAZR Maxx in Orange/Vodafone/o2/Carphone Warehouse. However many have a dedicated Samsung section like their Apple section. That turn around was in less than two years.

That's the key people, we have seen the tide change against the old OSs in around the same two year period.

The standard mobile phone contract is around 2 years, thats the cycle. It could happen for Nokia's Plan A or their Plan B.

The question is though: Do they have two years?
