I think that's rather unlikely. Waze's map editing toolkit runs best under Chrome, not Internet Explorer. The Waze client is not available for W8.

Both of those indicate to me that MS has not provided funding to Waze. Otherwise, there would have been a push to migrate both to MS-preferred platforms.

Is there public information to the contrary?

From what I have read around here, I don't think Waze is continuing to develop for the BB platform.

What do they all have in common? They all can run the same Metro apps. I have a USB GPS unit on my Surface and it lets me use the Bing maps app while I am on the go, but I would love to use Waze on it instead.

Waze is made for phones, not for laptops and desktops.
Besides, I don't think all apps are standard compatible with all windows 8 versions?

I don't think waze wants to use the metro (windows 8) design.

There is no official announcement of this.
So this is still only a rumour.

Can anybody from inside tell us if there are plans for windows phone 8 client? or maybe as a developer I can help with it and create a client using some public API?
