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.

Is anyone really going to wait?

I foresee affected users bailing from the Windows platform. Anyone who relies on these features is NOT going to wait up to 6 months for a Microsoft update to fix the problem!
