Larson-Green to head Xbox and Surface; Bates to head acquisitions? (Report)

Could Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer put Julie Larson-Green in charge of all hardware engineering for the company, including Xbox and Surface, and Skype President Tony Bates in charge of acquisitions and developer relations?

That’s apparently what Ballmer is considering, according to a Bloomberg News report on the reorganization being considered at Microsoft.

The restructuring has not yet been finalized, but could be so by next week, the Bloomberg report said, citing sources who asked not to be named because the plans are private.

Rumors have swirled around the restructuring reportedly underway as Ballmer aligns Microsoft more into a devices-and-services company.
