Google drops consumer ActiveSync Exchange support for Gmail, calendar, and contacts
The irony. I used to pay for AOL email back when that was the only thing reliable internationally. Then hotmail and gmail came out for free so AOL had to go to free. On my 9800 I get instant push on gmail currently. Company MS exchange is delayed. Will have to test AOL and outlook.com. Come back for AOL because of this?

Is there a paid version of gmail for the average consumer? I have only been able to find the business, education, or government applications. I would pay $50.00 a year to use these quality services. Especially if I can keep my existing email address. I don't want to switch to email@example.com. If somebody knows please post the link.

Email and Calendar Centralization - Things You Should Know About Gmail - University of Alberta
Email & Collaboration Tools Consultation | Ryerson Community Consultation
NYU > ITS > Communicate & Collaborate > NYU Google Apps
This is for the core services included with Google Apps, going elsewhere (Google+, Youtube, etc) will still have ads as it isn't part of their paid package.

firstname.lastname@example.org or anything under the sun that suits your fancy.. one big benefit to this in my opinion is you own the domain forever and a day (as long as you keep paying the 10 bucks a year of course) so in the future if there's a need to change providers for whatever reason, you take the address with you.. for example, email@example.com gets his email through google apps, but google apps ups the price or changes something.. he decides to switch to outlook.com.. his email address is still firstname.lastname@example.org and he doesn't miss a beat.. if his email address was email@example.com and he wanted to switch.. that address is gone, his can now get firstname.lastname@example.org, but that won't help him get messages sent to the gmail address.

I suspect they are doing this for EAS Customers who use Outlook.
Outlook 2013 introduced an ActiveSync connector which, one can assume will replace the Google Apps Sync plugin that they currently have to develop. If they go that route, they need to stop non EAS customers from using it. This seems like the most logical way to do it.

We've all seen photos of BB10 with the BIS dots next to the reception bars, so as long as you stay with a BIS plan for your BB10, I'd assume you have nothing to worry about if you're set up already. Your email accounts are all hooked to your BlackBerry ID so nothing should change between Google and RIM's servers, just between RIM and you. I'm guessing this will be a non-issue for BB users but a huge deal for WP8 users. Lends a bit of credence to MS's claims that Google is stock-blocking them. No stock YouTube app, no stock gMail support... I'm sure the list will get bigger.
