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.

I agree that it doesn't rest with Google

It rests with handsets that can be used at the retail space.

The retail channel problem is still an issue. All I see are one or 2 closed handsets (with UI stickers) dumped on tables of Android phones. All the ones customers can play with are Galaxies and the iPhone. There hasn't been much progress on this front.
