I am a Nokia user and I like the Windows phone. The reasons behind liking Nokia are the same as many of my fellow readers have mentioned... robust design, user friendly interface...etc. But I have also failed to understand, why Nokia is so confident on "no plan B"? If they are not over-confident, does that mean they don't have an option?...or would it be too late to move to Android to protect self-esteem? OR, they are working on a “plan B” which they don’t want to disclose to win the game? I would like to see the last one :)

I too feel its always better to opt for multiple OS rather than just stick to Windows OS. I am not sure why Nokia is so hesitant to opt Android OS ? When everyone knows that Android is the most successful OS after iOS what is wrong in releasing Nokia+android mobile ?

Samsung has Windows Phone OS, Bada OS and Android OS smartphone. If Samsung can do it and do it successfully, why can't Nokia???

woohoo, I do agree with you. Why not multiple OS, why are they taking widows side leaving other competitive OS like android.

Why doesn't nokia do what everyone else (HTC/SEC etc) is doing. Just make everything (android, win7/8,linux so on) and let evolution decide the survival of the fittest.

Apart from apps and other features, price may be very important factor. Nokia should provide very good price incentives for its hardware.

Even if Nokia has a "Plan B", they would never publicly admit it because it would shed a negative light on their Windows Phone.

I can hardly imagine the coalition of Microsoft and Nokia will fail. Nokia has been famous of beautiful industry design, excellent build of hardware and cost control. Both Microsoft and Nokia have been one of the early players in smartphone market. Nokia communicator was first launched in 1996. Microsoft launched Windows CE in 1996. I believe what important for Nokia to consider is not Plan B; it is how they can capture the mobile Internet market and how its product being differentiate from other smartphone in the good side.

Hows Intel going to help Nokia, if windows phone fails? Nokia would need a new better OS, not another hardware platform.
