Frustrated by the already irritating impending lack of access to syncing your Gmail accounts using Exchange? Windows Phone users have one more reason to complain today, as Google just pulled the plug in Google Maps for Windows Phone.
Owners are reporting that when attempting to visit the web version of the map service, they are instead being redirected to Google's landing page. This issue is effecting users with both Windows Phone 7 and 8.
It's not yet clear if Google is deliberately blocking Microsoft consumers from accessing Maps via mobile, or if this is simply a temporary issue. It's no doubt that Microsoft is sweating, particularly after the email debacle:
"Like many, we are surprised and disappointed that Google wants to make it more difficult for customers to connect their accounts to their devices. If you want better email, especially for your phone or tablet, now is a perfect time to join the millions who have already made the choice to upgrade to Outlook.com. Windows Phone users will still be able to sync their Google email via IMAP."
