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.

It is not the news that poisons the missing upgrade-path, its the consequences following them.

WP is not downwards-compatible. All new apps will not work on WP7. The already silent WP7 app-store becomes a ghost-town. No updated applications, no new features, nothing.

The big splash of marketing-fuse Microsoft does around WP8 will hit Lumia users. They will learn (through friends, support, shops, etc) that the multiple hundred $ device is, while only some months old, outdated, old, unsupported.
