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.

The problem is that ActiveSync generates income for MS and allows them to exclude competitors, and DAV generates no direct income for MS. Also, they lose control over who connects to their systems so they have little interest in supporting it.
