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.

Windows 8 installed base is still dwarfed by the mobile operating systems like Android and iOS and will likely never surpass them, as the PC market is shrinking, and now smaller than the market for mobile computing devices.


What?! Care to back that up with some actual facts? While I agree the desktop market is shrinking but it still accounts for >85% of the market. Based on the simple volumes Windows 8 WILL surpass Android and iOS and very soon.
