Windows "Does Windows Phone need Google and its services to be successful? No. The fate of Windows Phone and its adoption in the marketplace does not rest in the hands of Google. Microsoft itself holds the key to Windows Phone becoming a successful platform, rapid evolution of its cloud services and integration with the rest of the MS eco system." Good editorial on Google killing AES support for consumers and how it affects Windows Phone, by WPCentral's Robert Brand.

Nokia has been "sacrificed" by Microsoft as cannon-fodder to help them sustain the lengthy period to WP8. Now, Nokia is almost dead, and no longer a relevant player (they have fallen to 10th position in SmartPhone makers !). WP8 is too little too late. A bad news for Microsoft, a killing one for Nokia.

But then, it's Nokia shareholders who pay the price for this Microsoft's strategy.
