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.

Nokia still has a very good reputation (and well deserved from my consumer experience) of making solid and long-lasting hardware.

They lost it with N95's long list of issues.

They lost it as well by totally fumbling Maemo. Totally. There was no single Maemo/Meego device released by Nokia that wasn't buggy as heck and had support dropped in exactly the same way as WP7 in a similar timeframe (give or take 6 months.) This is just how Nokia works.

The N9 just got another firmware-update over the air. That makes it at least 2 years support for the N9. To bad they official do not support it else it would be good supported and prove you wrong :-)
