Windows Phone’s head of developer experiences, Brandon Watson is going to be Director of the Kindle Cross Platform team. As part of the Amazon Kindle team, apparently he’ll be working on the product development roadmap for Kindle apps in first and third party platforms. This includes Windows Phone apps and the Windows 8 app.

Zdnet updates their post with a corporate spokesperson:

We can confirm February 6th is Brandon Watson’s last day at Microsoft. Brandon did a great job helping us build a vibrant developer community and we wish him well with his next adventure.

On twitter @BrandonWatson’s Bio still says “I am responsible for apps/developers on Windows Phone” up until the February 6th change I guess.

He also confirms this on his twitter.

The rumors are true. The team is in great hands. I’ll miss working on #wpdev. I will the community, but won’t be a stranger

Who’s taking over from Watson?
