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.

Why would they invest into a phone platform where the search button is hardwired to useless Bing?

At least on Android you can change just about anything, that is why nearly everybody invests in it.

Open platforms always win the majority of the market, the rest is for locked-in people or fanboys.
