Windows So, just as Windows Phone 7.8 has finally started rolling out to devices, Microsoft and Google kiss and make up about the whole dropping of EAS thing. Google has extended its EAS support for Windows Phone users for six months, and Microsoft will add CardDAV and CalDAV support to Windows Phone (but not Windows 8/RT, so those users are still screwed by Microsoft's incompetence).

Google backing up from a hard line stance (while getting no additional concessions from Microsoft) is a loss to Microsoft? No.

See this for what it is, two mega corporations being civil. Not exactly something you see every day.

I for one am glad that the DAV suite is coming to Windows Phone. While I believe that EAS is technically superior (and I don't think anyone here that's a serious person disputes this), I also recognize the importance of interoperability.
