Google stopping Google Sync Exchange support for Contacts, Calendar and Gmail

As part of a “Winter Cleaning“, Google is stopping support for Exchange ActiveSync for Gmail, Google Contacts and Calendar soon.

According to Google:
Google Sync was designed to allow access to Google Mail, Calendar and Contacts via the Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync® protocol. With the recent launch of CardDAV, Google now offers similar access via IMAP, CalDAV and CardDAV, making it possible to build a seamless sync experience using open protocols. Starting January 30, 2013, consumers won’t be able to set up new devices using Google Sync; however, existing Google Sync connections will continue to function. Google Sync will continue to be fully supported for Google Apps for Business, Government and Education. Users of those products are unaffected by this announcement. In addition to Google Sync, we’re discontinuing Google Calendar Sync on December 14, 2012 and Google Sync for Nokia S60 on January 30, 2013. We’re also ending service for SyncML, a contacts sync service used by a small number of older mobile devices on January 30, 2013.
Google is recommending using CalDAV for calendar, CardDAV for contacts, and IMAP for email. iPhone users can just use the new Gmail app for that, though folks using Nokia’s older S60 and Symbian devices will have to take notice of this one. Windows Phone users too, might want to migrate that data over to Outlook. Sync will no longer be available for new accounts from January 30th 2013, but if you’re already set it up, it should continue to work. Calendar Sync though, is stopping immediately for new users.
Google also mentioned that Google Sync will continue to be fully supported for paid users of Google Apps for business, government, or education.
