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.

Yes, but so what? There's no shortage of developers. Consider that all iOS developers use Macs, which is a tiny, tiny platform compared to Windows. You don't need them to switch, as there are far more on the other side. No, WP8 will depend on Windows developers choosing to develop for WP8 as well. Since the developer tools are the same, they will look at them whether the platform is used or not.
