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.

"Good enough" is actually the whole point.

Google still supports EAS for their paying customers, which makes sense since Microsoft's expects a royalty fee. People who feel EAS is a superior alternative can still use the service if they are willing to pay for it. Which makes this debate really moot.
