Job posting hints at internally developed Microsoft phone

What does this all mean? Well, it could be pointing the way to an internally designed Microsoft phone running Zune HD2. After all, in the job listing under product, "Windows Phone" is listed. If this comes to fruition, Microsoft will be manufacturing the phone itself which would set this apart from Google's experience with the Nexus One. While both companies would be considered the developers of the OS in their own handset, The N-One was built by HTC.
Don't forget Google's focus was on changing the way cell phones are bought in the U.S. so that consumers would purchase a desired handset separately from their decision to use a specific carrier. While the Nexus One was a success as a phone, it did not spur the hoped-for revolution. We would imagine that Microsoft's goals are not so heady and Bill Gates and company would be happy just to develop a top selling phone.

Well technically Apple and Microsoft don't build their products either, they pay companies in china to build the products for them. Doesn't foxcomm build the xbox and other microsoft swag, or is that who makes apple products... either way it would be cool. As long as Microsoft doesn't allow manufacturers and carriers to alter the user experience of the device by force installing unremovable 3rd party apps (that effect the integrity and consistency of the OS) just like apple does with the iPhone, they should do well. I am excited to get my hands on a WP7 device, but we'll see what happens come October-December here States-side.
