Google stopped supporting Exchange back in January. Any devices that had it setup will still work, but new devices will not. It doesn't matter if your account was enabled or not - it's done on the device level.
If you want push email, there are numerous workarounds, including installing the Gmail app. A google search can point you in the right direction.

Thank you pdroth for your prompt response. It cleared up the confusion and confirmed the rumours I came across over the Internet.
Speaking of rumors, I hear Exchange still installs ok on new android and windows based devices. Which brings up the question: was this an Apple decision or was it Google's?
Either way, I have already found my work-around, thanks to your suggestions.
Life's good again . .
