Microsoft hints there’s no need for it to build own Windows Phone, has tons of control over Nokia
The rumor about Microsoft building a Windows Phone to launch in the future might sound terrifying to its exclusive partner, Nokia, but luckily it seems that it’s not very likely to be true.

When asked about his thoughts on the lack of a Microsoft Windows Phone device, Casey McGee, Microsoft's senior marketing manager for WP, said:

“We enjoy having the variety that we do. We are so close to the process that it feels like our child too. Especially with Nokia."

Take it as what you want, but it seems Microsoft is not upset that it does not have a phone like it has the Surface tablet or an Xbox.

"Our relationship is so close we get hardware early and we have some say in how these things are designed. For an engineer or a designer it might feel a little bit different, but I think for people working with the developers and talking broadly about the phone I am very happy with the relationship and the ability to influence what they are doing."

This should make it less likely for Microsoft to release such a device in the future, don’t you think?
