Exchange 2010 Activesync Devices

The default max limit for Exchange 2010 Activesync devices is 10 devices. I see this can be increased by creating a new policy:

New-Throttlingpolicy "Increased ActiveSync Devices" -EasMaxDevices 20 -EasMaxConcurrency 20
Set-Mailbox username -ThrottlingPolicy "Increased ActiveSync Devices"

Can this also be used to set the allowed number of devices to less than the default 10 devices, so i would like to set limit to only 2 devices.
Would this work?

Yes in theory this should work but remember that each device tablet, phone, etc. counts as a device.  Typically people want to increase this number instead of decreasing it.  You could turn it down and if you need to increase it then just change the Concurrency limit back up.

The key here is if this is set to Less then the default number you also have to consider how many devices that user already has. If the user already has 9 devices registered and you move them to a policy that has 5 max this will create issues in that they will not be able to add any more devices. So take that into consideration.

So I'm gathering that yes this number can be reduced from default of 10 devices, by creating a new policy and set to 2 devices if I wanted to.

Yes as I stated in my first post you can reduce the amount of devices.  This is just rarely done.
