I was researching a mobile campaign for a new client. I can't go into details, but let's say that Google Maps is an important application for them so I clicked on a text ad to get more details on Google Maps and I saw this chart which got me thinking. Why doesn't Google provide Business Reviews, Biking Directions, Latitude, Layers, My Maps, and Starred Items for iPhones yet provides them for Blackberrys, Nokia S60, and Windows devices? Is this chart a typo or is Google purposely trying to make iPhones look the worst of any devices when it comes to Google features?
Seriously, you don't have to look very hard to see that the iPhone appears to be the worst device on the chart. Is this what Apple vs Google has come down to? Google penalizing Apple device users yet supporting Windows based phones? I get saving special features for Android devices, but purposely penalizing a device that people love the most? This doesn't seem very Google like and it appears to be purposely evil....I hope/wish this chart just hasn't been updates because it seems quite sad....
