New Petition To Bring Google Apps To Windows PhoneDecember 29, 2012 4 Comments
With worse than poor offerings from Google when it comes to the Windows Phone OS, its getting harder and harder for the head honchos at Google to keep their hatred of all Windows products publicly at a minimum. There are certain workarounds to enable the use of things like multiple calendars, but with the recent announcement that Google will be dropping Exchange ActiveSync support for Gmail in January, the people caught in the middle of this warring company’s affairs have had enough. Below is a petition that users can now sign in order to bring some of Google onto our beloved platform.
Because consumers exercise choice and use multitude of products from different providers. Sometimes we also pay for those services. It is discrimination against consumers if they are being forced to choose platforms based on eco-system support and not their choice. There is no denying that Windows Phone is a promising platform, but app providers like Google keeping their apps walled to Android or iOS is not helping the consumers. The rivalry between the vendors is their own and consumers shouldn’t be dragged into it.
Google has made public statements about not supporting Windows Phone platform, even to an extent of pulling support for the Exchange Activesync protocol. At the end, the consumer suffer.
Google will do great service to their users and consumers by offering some products on rival platform, notable Google Apps, Drive, Google+ and Google Talk.
Cool Stuff? Currently they are at 4,640 supporters with a goal of 5000. If your into the whole Google thing then sign up to help the cause here.Tags: Apps, chang.org, Google, petitionAbout, Apps, News, Phones
