After Nokia announced its strategic partnership with Microsoft (here
), howls of protest came from various directions, with the one getting the most attention being 'nine young investors' proposing a 'Plan B'
. But wait...
After only about 36 hours, the "Plan B" group declared defeat
, citing lack of institutional investor support. BUT WAIT...
Only a few hours after that, the "Nokia Plan B" website (Google cache
) was taken down and redirected to a twitter account
that declared it was all a hoax by "one very bored engineer who really likes his iPhone". BUT WAIT!
During the short lifespan of Plan B, a bunch of other generally less serious "Plan" websites popped up including Nokia Plan C
, Nokia Plan D
, Plan ET (surprisingly not a planet)
, Plan F (for Fail)
, Plan G (huh? is this one SERIOUS?)
, Plan H (an interesting concept phone)
, PlanK (yeah, same gag)
, Plan L (using another Finnish icon and web meme)
, Plan M (scroll down)
, Plan ARRRR (inevitable) PlanT (slightly different gag)
, Plan V (for Vote, an online poll)
, Plan X (a random plan generator)
, Plan 2 (or Pun 2)
and, of course, Plan 9
, as well as a prediction of the result of Plan A
