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.

Or how about an open hardware platform, which is capable of running several different systems...

Android, Meego and WebOS are all based on the Linux kernel, so once you have one of the three running getting the others is relatively easy, especially if you aren't relying on binary drivers.

Such a phone could be offered with a choice of the 3 platforms, or even a multi boot capability... Nokia's Meego phone sold very well despite their attempts to stifle distribution, and Android handsets with the Nokia brand (who still have a reputation for quality and reliability) could sell well.
