Nokia have a back up plan………..After all!

Nokia’s chairman broke the silence on Nokia’s backup plan in a recent interview by Yle with Nokia’s Chairman Risto Siilasmaa:

Siilasmaa pointed out that the company owned five business areas, including its location services, patent stock and network division (Nokia Siemens Networks).

He defended the choice of Windows Phone as the platform to replace its flagging Symbian operating system, as he knew that symbian is on steady decline since 2008.

“Symbian’s market share has come down close to zero,” Siilasmaa said of the decision to switch to Windows.

Siilasmaa said Windows Phone had been selected after a critical and detailed study of available options.

He said the Windows Phone 8 platform is a technological first, providing users with a seamless user experience across multiple platforms, from PCs to tablets and smartphones.

Siilasmaa said Nokia has a contingency plan in place if the Windows 8 Phone fails to live up to expectations. But he said the company was confident that the product would be a success.

The board chairman was steadfast in his support of beleaguered CEO Stephen Elop, who has come under criticism as the company continues to lose value. Siilasmaa refused to comment on whether a management shakeup was on the cards.

“He came in at a tough time,” Siilasmaa said, adding that Elop’s management style had been “good and transparent.”

Talking about the backup plan of Nokia he clearly refused that Symbian will never come again and Meltemi is also not getting a fair amount of chance.

  • What will Nokia try if WP8 fails?
  • Will it be Android or it will be Meego or may be an entirely different thing like Nokia Air(cloud OS concept)?
