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.

> WP7 is bigger than Bada globally and it's still tiny.

Not the case. Bada runs on more phones, has a higher marketshare then WP and unlike WP bada is growing!

> I'd like WebOS to succeed, as I think it's a well-designed OS, but it's not very likely, nor is it very likely that Tizen or Firefox OS gain any significant marketshare.

Why not?

> Just look at Maemo, Moblin and MeeGo.. All of them pretty much dead in the water.

Cause Nokia killed them before they hit the market.

> Why would Tizen do any better?

Tizen is Samsung and 2 of its 3 platforms are a success already. Why should the 3th be different?
