Juha Christensen to leave Microsoft Mobile Devices Marketing Group
Posted on 7-Nov-2003 07:33 | Tags Filed under: News



According to CNET, Juha Christensen, currently corporate vice president of the Mobile Devices Marketing Group at Microsoft, is planning to leave the company. Juha Christensen is responsible for managing strategic partnerships, business development and product marketing for Microsoft's mobility solutions. Products overseen by Christensen include Pocket PC, Pocket PC Phone Edition and Smartphone 2002.

"The unit is still unprofitable, but sales have been growing of late as Windows Mobile 2003 Pocket PC-based devices' have gained ground in the handheld market. Also, the first products using Microsoft's Smartphone 2003 operating system are just coming to market. For example, ATT Wireless last month started selling a Motorola-made phone using Microsoft's software.

Christensen is leaving to join a Silicon Valley-based mobile device startup that will also have offices in Christensen's native Denmark. Christensen will work at Microsoft through 1st December 2003 and will begin at the unnamed startup on 1st January 2004, according to a Microsoft representative. Christensen, corporate vice president of Microsoft’s Mobile Devices Marketing Group, told his team of his plans Wednesday night, the representative said."
