I've read that Google's support for Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) remains in place for enterprise customers, even after the Jan 30, 2013 deadline.  

The Microsoft Surface I'm trying to set up disagrees.  Is there a server address specific enterprise customers that I should be using instead of m.google.com?

Starting January 30, 2013, users, other than paid Google Apps users, won't be able to set up new devices using Google Sync. iPhone and iPad users should see Sync Gmail, Calendar and Contacts. Other users should see our sync site for instructions. You can also consult with your device carrier or manufacturer for how they recommend to sync with Gmail, Google Calendar, and Contacts. Google Apps for Business, Education, and Government customers can continue to set up new devices with Google Sync after this date.

Yes, you can use EAS if you sign up for paid Google Apps for Business and you have not upgraded to windows 8.1.

The only workaround is to install outlook 2013 if your device is surface pro version.
