Microsoft's on {x}

I read a brief article on Microsoft's on {x} app a while back and have been thinking about it lately. Having come from a rooted Samsung Fascinate running AOKP to a HTC Trophy this summer, I though to myself cool, this is just another app that Microsoft won't release for their own platform. We know how long Photosynth has been out and how there's no signs for it showing up on Windows Phone. But then it hit me, what if Microsoft is strategically having people running android test it, and work out the bugs, so they can implement it in WP8. I know they didn't say anything about it at the conference but it could be one of these end user features they didn't talk about.

What do you guys think?
