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 the market want a 3rd mobile platform? As much as it hurt me (I'm a Linux guy), the desktop world has long been dominated by 2 (not 3!) platforms: Windows and OSX.

Now we have the mobile space with 2 dominant platforms, Android and iOS. Why would there be space for a 3rd?
