Earlier this year, we brought you word that Nokia has decided to place all of their eggs in a single basket – which means that they do not have any Plan B so to speak, throwing their entire lot with the Windows Phone ecosystem. I guess it was rather premature to go along with the general consensus, as Finnish phone manufacturer Nokia has stepped forward to claim that they do have a Windows Phone ‘contingency plan’, after all.
Chairman Risto Siilasmaa dropped hints over a live Finnish TV talk show that Nokia has a backup plan just in case the upcoming Windows Phone 8 software tanks. Risto Siilasmaa is also F-Secure’s founder and former chief executive, having appointed as Nokia’s board chairman just a couple of months ago, and has thrown his weight behind Microsoft’s Windows Phone operating system that more or less signalled the end of Symbian on most of Nokia’s handsets. Just what do you think Nokia’s Plan B actually is?
