Nokia Chairman Says There is A Contingency Plan if Windows Phone 8 Fails

Last year around this time Stephen Elop CEO of Nokia was all in and betting the game on WP by saying there is no Plan B, Plan B is to make sure Plan A is successful. But now Nokia chairman Risto Siilasmaa says that there is in fact another plan, so it is either things have changed in the past year or Elop is not privileged enough to know about super secret Plan B. Risto Siilasmaa said that Nokia does, in fact, have a contingency plan in the event that Windows Phone 8 powered products doesn’t meet sales expectations. Risto Siilasmaa has been in this position since May replacing longtime Nokia chairman Jorma Ollila, who spent 27 years of his life with Nokia. Siilasmaa didn't quite talk about Plan B, but when he was asked about the initial decision to switch to Windows Phone, he said, “Symbian’s market share has come down close to zero.” Based on statements switching back to Symbian is not going to be their Plan B. Maybe their Plan B could be adopting android ? Nevertheless anything can happen, but the failing rate for Windows Phone 8 is very less. So if Windows Phone 8 does fail Plan B will commence. We have to wait till Q1 2013 to see the sales of Windows Phone Devices as Windows Phone 8 is slated to be launched in fall.
