Former Windows Phone general manager Charlie Kindel has been scooped up by Amazon to take point on a new top secret project at the e-commerce mammoth. The project involves cloud computing and mobile services, but no other information is available.




On his LinkedIn profile, Kindel mentions that he is putting a new team together that will be responsible for heading up a completely new area for Amazon. He is hiring cloud and mobile developers as well as managers, and experienced testers.


Kindel left Microsoft in 2011 to work on a startup called BizLogr, a company that developed an automated tool that uses a calendar to create mileage logs that is used to calculate per-mile deductions for the business use of your personal car. Kindel will remain with BizLogr as the owner and founder.
