Google Extends Sync Support for Windows Phone Until December 31

The extension of the leniency goes all the way till December 31st. The original plan Google had in mind was to scrap the service of its Exchange ActiveSync. But the date has been put off thereby giving time to Microsoft to create support mechanisms for its Windows Phone. A spokesperson for Microsoft corroborated the fact that Microsoft was being given a grace period to get its act together. Microsoft is still in the process of dealing with its platform. CardDAV and CalDAV support is part and parcel of the all-new Windows Phone 8 update. This one employs IMAP for email purposes. The service is available for particular devices at present.

Microsoft is glad that it is being given the opportunity to build its own support platform. This will than replace the Google Exchange ActiveSync system. The whole issue was a bone of contention between Microsoft and Google. But now the two seem to have buried the hatchet. With the postponement of the cancellation date, both parties can lie back and relax their tight schedules. The GDR 2 Update will be received in due time without any hassles or hitches. A little cooperation goes a long way. In the business world, just like in the arena of politics, there are no permanent rivalries. Long time enmities give way to cordial relationships depending upon the situation.
