WP also isn't a viable choice yet, so they probably see no point. It reminds me of when Android first came to the market, there were a lot of iOS developers that stayed away from the platform.

True that gaining market share doesn't matter when there's no support behind it. The whole thing is quite a paradox. Google even confirmed they wouldn't develop apps for WP, because they believe there isn't a big enough user base to justify it. Which is where the paradox comes in, developers want a bigger user base to develop apps for, but the user base will only grow if the developers develop the apps.
WP has expanded their app market pretty fast, and I know that WP users are petitioning for Google to release their apps to the platform, so maybe it's a possibility.

On another note, CES is coming soon and I can't wait to see the newest gadgets.
