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 already provides an interface for desktop Outlook clients in Google Apps Sync for Microsoft Outlook https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gappssync. RT users are still out of luck but regular Windows 8 aren't. Of course, since Outlook 2013 supports EAS it would be better to just use that since it's a superior (albeit closed and therefore evil ;) ) solution.

OMG! A segment that never had these features will not get those features! THE HORROR!!!

How did people live in the dark ages of long past of Windows7 where Outlook did not sync calendars and contacts with your GMail account?

PS: On desktop (Windows 8) EAS is no superior to IMAP(w/IDLE)+CalDAV+CardDAV.
