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.

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will learn (through friends, support, shops, etc) that the multiple hundred $ device is, while only some months old, outdated, old, unsupported.


Of course they will find this out AFTER they own the device. Like I said, consumers are ill-informed.

I doubt that this will lead to 'the demise of windows phone' gloom and doom BS. This upgrade path fiasco is not the fatal blow that some think it is.

Did the lack of general upgrade-ability kill android? Phone hardware is really only 'current' for one to three months. "Designed obsolescence" is what it's called.
