I'm looking at (finally) upgrading to a smartphone this year, and Windows Phone is currently at the forefront of my consideration. However, I'm concerned about how well it may integrate with the cloud-based services I use via Google. I know Microsoft has their own comparable cloud-based services, but I'm not interested in migrating any time soon.
The services I want to connect to my phone are:
- Google Calendar
- Google Drive/Docs
- Google Talk
How well does an out-of-the-box Windows Phone 8 OS integrate with these Google services? Are there apps available to work with those not natively supported by the OS? Are there any which I will just not be able to use with a Windows phone?
