Looming disruption to ActiveSync users
In the long running battle between Microsoft and Google, Google will be ending support for Exchange ActiveSync on Windows Mobile phones from July 31st. (Extended from January 30th at Microsoft's request).
In a related move, Microsoft has now announced that the Windows 8 OS has moved to IMAP, ending the ability to sync Google Calendars. This will not be the end to this long running battle. If you use Google products on MS devices then expect more change in the future.
