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.

Yeah, I know..
But noone (read: the global general public) knows what Tizen, or even Bada, is. If even Windows Phone won't sell, despite having a very very familiar name and logo, how do you expect Tizen would stand a chance?
There aren't more apps for Bada then there are for WP7, so beeing able to run Bada apps is not good enough for Tizen to be able to succeed.. Hell, even if Tizen ran Android apps it wouldn't be enough. Joe User simply doesn't care about some new OS he's never heard of. iPhone or Android, that's what Joe User knows and wants. Without Joe User, there simply won't be any significant marketshare.

Don't get me wrong, I really want Tizen to succeed, but I highly doubt it will.
