It was previously 20MB
Windows Phone 7 and 8 users can now download files up to 50MB, which is more than double the previous cap.
Microsoft had previously implemented a data cap of 20MB for over-the-air downloads of games and apps on a cellular connection. This applied to both Windows Phone 7 and
Windows Phone 8
However, it looks like the company quietly increased that cap to 50MB. It's unclear when this happened exactly, but those with Windows Phone 7 or 8 can now download larger files over their cellular network.
Last month, Google said it wouldn't
develop dedicated apps
for Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8 because of a lack of demand. More specifically, it won't develop Gmail or Drive dedicated apps.

Agreed. No relevance whatsoever to the rest of the story.
