Google "Google has revealed that it has no plans to develop dedicated apps for Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8 for its business app products such as Gmail or Drive." Product management director for Google Apps, Clay Bavor, told V3 that Google "will go where the users are but they are not on Windows Phone or Windows 8". Ouch - but for now, hard to argue with.

But, you see, actually iOS is both more agressive and a more efficient competitor against Android. If this movement is against competitors, then google map for iOS is a clear contradiction. Apple Maps was going to be a phenomenal tool against Apple's position as competitor of Google.

There is no ideology. There are brands and competition. That's the reason I cannot understand why they aren't going to offer google products for Windows 8. The raw majority of the PC that are going to be sold are going to be Windows 8, so market share of windows 8 is going to be necessarily high in some months.

Therefore, there is a weird decission here, specially keeping in mind the raw amount of damage that Apple has intended to produce to Android and Google's partners.
