Another Microsoft Windows Phone executive has jumped ship for Amazon.

Robert Williams, a WinPho business development boss, has left Redmond and tweeted he’s now “at work” at the online shopping centre. Williams had been with Microsoft at least until May.

The move comes as reports suggest the retailer-turned-e-book-maker is building its own mobile to rival Apple's iPhone.

In February, Microsoft’s Windows Phone unit lost Brandon Watson, its head of developer experience who was working on Windows Phone 7, to Amazon. Watson had been a big cheerleader for Windows Phone among dev types.

Watson’s LinkedIn bio says he’s now an Amazon director working on product management for the Kindle software business for first- and third-party devices.

Watson’s role involves putting Kindle apps on devices including Windows Phone, Android and iOS devices. ®
