Microsoft’s MCB is now “Windows Phone Division”

Microsoft recently silently renamed their Mobile Communications Business (MCB) division, which was responsible for the development of all Windows Phone-related products (including Windows Phone 7 as well as Windows Mobile 6.x). As spotted on Andy Lee’s corporate profile page, the division is now called to "Windows Phone Division":

According to Mary Jo Foley, this is a name change only and "that there’s no change in the unit’s responsibilities or charter", according to a Microsoft spokesperson. Given that Microsoft is slowly phasing out their Windows Mobile 6.x products with the announced closure of several services such as the Windows Mobile 6.x Marketplace and Microsoft MyPhone, it makes sense to place the focus on the "Windows Phone" brand.
