The Verge reports Microsoft has known since Summer 2012 that Google was dropping dropping support for Exchange ActiveSync, but that they did not have time to implement support for Googleâ€™s chosen standards yet.
The news apparently dropped while Microsoft was finalizing Windows Phone 8 with operator trials for devices due in October, and Google has not responded to request for a 6 month extension to release a patch.
Googleâ€™s attitude I think makes clear their malicious attitude towards Windows Phone. Are many of our readers still using their calendar and contact products? Let us know below.
