Joe Belfiore, one of the chief driving forces behind Windows Phone, is taking a break from his job at Microsoft. Belfiore plans to take a leave of absence from November through mid-2016, during which time he will be focusing on his family. Belfiore has often been seen on stage demonstrating Windows Phone features, and he played a prominent role in bringing Windows Phone 7, 8, and 8,1 to fruition. Belfiore says Microsoft is supporting his time off. "When the trip is over, I'll be right back at it," said Belfiore in a post to his personal Facebook page. "I'm proud to have spent the last 25 years working for a thoughtful and considerate company here at Microsoft. I'll be back at Microsoft in my same job working on Windows next summer." Belfiore's work in shaping Windows 10 Mobile has likely run its course as the platform nears final release. Windows 10 Mobile is expected to arrive in December, shortly after Belfiore begins his leave.
