Windows The Verge has a learned a few interesting things about Google deprecating EAS and how this will affect Windows Phone users. As it turns out, Google informed Microsoft it was planning to remove EAS in the summer of last year, but without giving a firm date. Microsoft has been trying to get a six-month extension from Google, but so far with no luck. In the meantime, Microsoft is also working on adding CardDAV and CalDAV support to Windows Phone - so yay open standards.

Locked in DIY is hurting MS. Now they have to support their own proprietary protocols in addition to supporting open ones. Twice as much work! I hope they start supporting opengl ES soon as well. They'll probably need to to stay relevant on the mobile side.
