Stephen Elop may not be Microsofts new CEO, but the former head of Nokia is not going unrewarded for bringing the phone manufacturer into the Microsoft fold. According to an internal memo, Elop will replace Julie Larson-Green as the head of Microsofts Devices and Studios business, putting him in charge of Xbox, Microsoft Surface, and Microsofts game development efforts, in addition to the new cellular handset business. Originally, Elop had been slated to run an expanded devices team upon his return to Microsoft, but it now appears hell control the entire division. The memo comes from Julie Larson-Green herself as she takes on a new role: shes becoming the Chief Experience Officer for the companys Applications and Services group, managing the look and feel of products like Bing, Office, and Skype.
