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.

There is no contigency plan beyond claiming there is a contigency plan in the hopes of keeping someone still confident in them. In 6 months without a major turnaround, they are where RIMM is now. No plan C would amount to much of a contigency.

I agree, this is just a cheap talk to tame the stock depreciation before it hits psychological barrier <$2. Elop has long made sure it's MS way or highway.

What about Nokia joining with Rim as Plan B?
