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 can tell you're lucky the office didn't go for Windows phone, unless you do absolutely nothing with email on the phone.
Tried to configure the Exchange account for one of our customers on those Lumias in a reasonable way. Nothing worked to get it to accept the local domain certificate other than mailing it to the Live account (having to enable that for email sync temporarily) and installing it from there.
So unless the Exchange server has an official (paid for) certificate you're screwed.
Long live Android and iPhone with the ability to accept custom certificates.

It's so funny you mentioned the Exchange integration issues, it reminded me how things are tied together when you look at the big picture. We used to run our own email server (it was Sendmail on Solaris) until I got my first Android. Then I looked at the great Gmail app and then the email app on the phone. It also happened that I had some problems with the anti-spam software setup and I decided that I should give Google Apps a try. We are happy Google Apps users since then and I've also converted a few others.
