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.

If you ask me, Microsoft killed killed the platform by announcing that the current phones won't be supported by the upcoming Windows Phone 8. Who in his right mind, will want to buy a current Windows Phone like the Lumia only to be limited to version 7.x?

Consumers are not well informed and it is quite likely that they wouldn't even know that their shiny new WP7 phone will not be upgraded to WP8, which they probably never even heard of anyway.

Consumers are sheep and they will buy what they desire, not what is best.

Anyway, it's a big leap to assume that microsoft 'killed' windows phone by not upgrading current handsets. Very few people will care.
