I read a different article yesterday that said it redirect the users to google
because the maps did not render correct on the WP8 and gave a poor user
experience.

What they originally said was that as IE didn't use WebKit, the experience was poor. Well, Firefox and Opera don't use WebKit either, but there's no block there.

They then changed their tack, but it was shown that a simple user agent spoof on Windows Phone allowed the user to use Google Maps with no problems.

However - an important point is that Google have previously said that their mapping works cross browser with no loss of functionality, regardless of which browser is used.
