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.

As I said IMAP IDLE is good enough, even if it's not a true duplex protocol. It's good enough to get rid of proprietary analogs. Interoperability is way more important than better protocols which come with lock-in price.
