Former Nokia boss Stephen Elop now in charge of Xbox

Microsoft Devices & Services boss Julie Larson-Green has announced in an internal Microsoft memo that she will be changing roles and leaving Elop in charge of the Xbox division.
Newsbrief: When Microsoft acquired Nokia's mobile business back in September, the company put Nokia CEO Stephen Elop into the executive vice president role at its Devices & Services division -- the portion of the company that handles Xbox, amongst other devices. Today, Devices & Services boss Julie Larson-Green announced in an internal Microsoft memo, as reported by TechCrunch, that she will be changing roles and leaving Elop in charge of the division. This latest shake-up comes just weeks after Microsoft named Satya Nadella as its new CEO, a man who has spearheaded strategy and technical shifts at Microsoft, including the company's development of its grand-scale cloud infrastructure, which currently supports the Xbox services.
