Windows Phone calendar, contact sync keeps Google support through 2013

1 Comment

Google Sync(s goog) support on Windows Phones(s msft) was set to cease on July 31, but the service gains a reprieve until Dec. 31. Microsoft has included CalDAV and CardDAV support in Windows Phone to replace Google Sync. However, not all Windows Phone handsets have the new software. This extension should give Microsoft enough time to push the software out to all of its devices.

This still doesn’t excuse the fact that this feature will go away at some point. Google should completely reverse course and keep Google Sync and Exchange Activesync support permanently for all of its users. Users shouldn’t have to pay for business accounts. Google has been paying royalities to Microsoft for years. It’s not like Google can’t afford to pay Microsoft. Google has acqured many Gmail users because of Google Sync and Exchange Activesync. If Google never had offered these features Gmail would have significantly fewer users today.
