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.

When you turn on your Xbox, Windows 8 PC and unlock your Windows Phone 8 device they (will) have very similar and consistent UIs.

I'm afraid those devices have very different use cases with very different screen sizes and interaction and you're going to be hard pushed to find anyone who wants or expects them to look the same.

If Microsoft believes as you do that this is a feather in their cap then they're going to be very disappointed - all over again. They have already been through many years of total failure where they vainly believed that having the start menu on a phone would have desktop users flocking to have Windows on their phones. I don't see anything that will change that.
