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.

To a great degree your argument here hinges on whether or not a Windows Market actually takes off. I would wait and see on that. At this point I think we should start using "this is the year of MS on mobile" instead of "this is the year of linux on the desktop".

If its true that most computers are used for email, web browsing, youtube, etc a windows market won't really have much of an impact.

And another important item: Mobile is currently high growth, extremely high growth. PC is fairly stagnant. Follow the opportunity where there's real growth and real marketshare, it's currently on android and ios.
