A little less than a year after Nokia US' Chris Weber proclaimed rather bluntly, "the reality is if we are not successful with Windows Phone, it doesn't matter what we do," Nokia's chairman Risto Siilasmaa reportedly said in an interview that the company does, indeed, have a "contingency plan," should Windows Phone 8 falter. What precisely such a plan might entail, however, we're not really sure. Still, the F-Secure founder naturally remains positive about the future of Microsoft's mobile operating -- and Nokia head honcho Stephen Elop, whose leadership has been "good and transparent," according to Siilasmaa.
