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.

Wouldn't it have been smarter to release a series of phones with the same design and hardware and provide users the choice of running Windows Phone, Meego, or Android? This would have allowed them to hedge their bets and they could let the market decide which OS users preferred. Instead, they put all of their eggs into a single basket and it certainly doesn't appear to be paying off.
