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.

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.


Come to Australia. WP8 phones are now the most heavily promoted models. They are on the front cover of the latest Vodaphone catalogue and in the most prominent postions in the stores.

iPhones are missing from most phone stores and are barely mentioned in the catalogues.
