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.

The N9 sold well and Nokia still has the knowledge inhouse to pick it up again, put it on hardware and sell products within short time.

From what I hear from my Finnish friends, Nokia no longer has that knowledge. Elop's cost cutting plans have been very effective at weeding out that knowledge.

But hey, Finnish startups got a very good injection of prime talent.
