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.

logic step

I find that a very logical step. Why should Google support a competitor, who's still fighting with patents? It's hard to believe Google Maps was released for iOS... I hope this will change in the near future.

Google is making money with its services. If there are users Google will offer them there services so they can make money. If that's on Android, on iPhone, on Blackberry or on xyz is not relevant as long as they can reach users and are not blocked by app-store policies. They not do for WP8 cause there are no users (beside rounding errors) on WP8. Its for the same reason other ISV's will not deliver to WP8 either: its just not worth the investment.
