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 don't think you understood. The author seems to think that because Microsoft offers webmail, calendaring, cloud storage, etc, that people won't mind changing providers for all of those over to Microsoft.

As it is now, I can switch between IOS and Android devices without having to change any of that. I can't use windows phone now, without changing those over to Microsoft services.
