Zune isn’t the only Microsoft gadget group seeing changes.
Over at the Origami/UltraMobile PC team, group manager Dustin Hubbard and most of his team are being reassigned to a new secret project at Microsoft.
The UMPC project continues, however. Oscar Koenders will be the new product unit manager, Dustin said in his entry.
I wonder if the changes are good or bad signs. Microsoft seems to be waffling on its commitment to the UMPC project, at least compared with the mojo behind Zune.
If Microsoft and its partners ever get them right, UMPCs could be an interesting alternative to the iPhone. Maybe that’s what Dustin’s going to work on?
