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).

When malice and stupidity team up you get an event like this.

It all starts out with Microsoft wanting to be paid for active-sync support from Google.

Microsoft thought Google would not pull plug on it. Right Microsoft you don't have market share in phones worth bugger all so Google has no problem pulling it since 90+ percent of the market support webdav. Malice to get money and Stupid it not be aware you are not sitting in a location where you can bargain.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Live_Mail Windows 8 desktop and tablet already has some Webdav support.

So its all round Microsoft incompetence. Just Google is not putting up with it since they don't have to. Yes extending EAS support is being kind from Google.
