Former Windows Phone Exec In Charge Of Secret Amazon Project

We’ve heard tons of rumors regarding an Amazon phone for the last couple of years. It still hasn’t become a reality, and many of us believe it has to do with Amazon’s closed business model, which has only proven to be mildly good on their tablet offerings as a strategy. Now, once you start noticing that Charlie Kindel, former General Manager of the Windows Phone developer platform, show up for work at Amazon on Monday, and being in charge of a secret program, rumors get good.

This is the first time we see Amazon actually hiring a high-caliber executive from any other company focused on building smartphones. His job description states:

“I’m building a new team going after a totally new area for Amazon. I’m hiring cloud and mobile developers and testers, program managers, and product managers,”

So one can only guess this has to do with a new smartphone? Time will tell.
