Microsoft has moved Andy Lees, the manager most directly responsible for fostering the creation of Windows Phone, to a new role within the company. "I have asked Andy Lees to move to a new role working for me on a time-critical opportunity focused on driving maximum impact in 2012 with Windows Phone and Windows 8," said Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer in a memo sent to AllThingsD. "We have tremendous potential with Windows Phone and Windows 8, and this move sets us up to really deliver against that potential." Microsoft has given corporate VP Terry Myerson new business development, marketing, and other responsibilities in addition to his engineering tasks, effectively putting him in charge of the Windows Phone team moving forward. Ballmer has said publicly that Windows Phone sales are not where he wants them to be. Microsoft is hoping its new partnership with Nokia helps give Windows Phone greater traction in the market. Nokia is expected to announce its first Windows Phone device for the U.S. market this week.
