After the huge stink about the Google Maps web version disappearing for Windows Phone users, Google has finally re-enabled it. The redirect was put into place last week, which saw Windows Phone users being re-directed to the main homepage of Google instead of being allowed to access Maps. Google’s reasoning was that Internet Explorer didn’t offer a good maps experience, but this has proven to be untrue.
Google and Microsoft have been at each other’s throats recently, with Google pulling Exchange ActiveSync for Gmail account holders and Microsoft criticizing the FTC settlement over Google’s “monopoly”. This is likely not the last attempt we’ll see from Google to stifle Windows Phone users, so be prepared for it.
