Something’s up in Microsoft’s Windows Mobile division. Or maybe nothing at all, but conspiracy theories always make for good conversation don’t they? Techflash is reporting that Zune executive Joe Belfiore and Windows Home Server GM Charlie Kindel have been reassigned to the Mobile Communications Business which oversees Windows Mobile.
Microsoft has confirmed the moves but it is still unclear what the execs will do in their new roles. It wouldn’t surprise me if Microsoft planned to extend its Zune business into Windows Mobile 7. Maybe the company will roll out an iTune’s competitor and as for Kindel, could his new role have something to do with the new “Sky” cloud computing initiative expected to launch at the Mobile World Congress?
