ActiveSync is still usable on paid for google business services (and educational) you just don't get it for free on free accounts.
    The licencing terms have remained static as far as we know, it's unlikely they changed it just for Google, just now. Besides if they could have laid blame on MS for it there would have been something on their blogs. I'm guessing that they are actually starting to interpret W8 and W8Phone as a possible issue down the road and this is just a little road block they can throw in the way. It will be a while before 8 picks up the numbers to be a viable mobile threat but the fact that MS has unified the platform and actually stuck with it for a second version. Generally if MS sticks at things they can make a good go of them - example Xbox platform.

    It looks like it'll still work if you've got it setup already? Just new setups won't.

    2012 was as @ZeroHour bought one and I have one so all is good, infact I never left having one from the days of Windows Mobile to Windows Phone now just wish HTC would hurry up and make a new one with a physical keyboard to replace the HTC Pro 7 for a Pro 8 and I'd be happier than any man alive!

    Well they managed to go from 97% marketshare of all operating systems in 2000 to 20% by 2012. So 2012 it wasn't really microsofts year!

    A few questions...

    • Can you explain what happened in 2004-2005 since Goldman Sachs won't elaborate? Who and what are 'Other' and how did they get 29% market share within the space of a single year?
    • Goldman Sachs are classing smartphones, tablets and laptop/desktops as computers. This means that from 2000-2004 there weren't any 'computers' purchased by consumers that used Linux, Symbian, Palm, Maemo or Blackberry OSs? Microsoft and Apple had 100% between them and everyone else 0%?
    • If Apple have a marketshare of 24% this year, why is their mobile browser market share disproportionally higher at 61.5%?

    Slightly off the topic of where this thread went, but I have been looking for an article I saw related to this - someone earlier mentioned Microsoft would publish some easy steps for migrating from Gmail... well they did::

    Google extends Windows Phone support for Exchange ActiveSync until July 31st

    The change of heart follows Microsoft's requests for Google to extend its Exchange ActiveSync support for six months. It appears that Google has honoured Microsoft's requests, allowing Windows Phone users to continue using Google Sync until July 31st. According to our own sources, Microsoft is preparing an update for Windows Phone to support CardDav and CalDAV protocols.

    Google has confirmed this extension is only for Windows Phone. A workaround for Windows 8 and Windows RT users is available, but there is no solution for calendar support just yet.
