Basically, this is Microsoft's classic plan of Embrace, extend, and extinguish.

Why come out with a disabled version of Android in the first place ? Why not just stick to WP8 if they want to provide all those feature functionality ? They are definitely not doing this out of the goodness of their hearts and offering choice to the public, seeing as the public is more than able to choose from a varied choice of AOSPs out there if they want to use a version of Android without having any lock-in to Google's services.
