Windows Mobile gets a new boss

Terry Myerson, Microsoft Corporate Vice-President for Exchange, is heading over to lead the Windows Mobile product team.

Terry Myerson came to Exchange in 2001. At Microsoft, Myerson has guided the development of six server products, including Microsoft Site Server, BizTalk Server and, since 2001, Exchange. Myerson was appointed corporate vice president in January 2008.

Under his leadership, the Exchange team has delivered 2 major releases- Exchange Server 2003 and Exchange Server 2007, and become the market leader in enterprise messaging.

Given how Windows Mobile has been folded into the Entertainment and Devices devision years ago, it is unclear if Terry is replacing some-one, or if Windows Mobile itself is getting a higher profile.

Hopefully the arrival of some-one with a record of delivery will speed the release of Windows Mobile 7.
