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.

I don't know what is the plan, but what I know is that it is something incredibly stupid. Come on people, this is Nokia, they can't make any clever move or hell would freeze.
Here are the alternatives:
1 - Sell smartphone division to Microsoft.
2 - Sell their network division and invest all the money on Windows phones
3 - Give away their Windows phone (send one for free to everybody on the planet) in order to increase WP8 market share.
4 - Sell their patents to Microsoft.
5 - Merge with Microsoft.
6 - Fire Elop and take Ballmer.
7 - Change business model, stop phones all together and start coding for Windows.
