Former Windows Phone Director joins Amazon, fuels Kindle phone rumours

Steady on Amazon. At this rate you'll be catching with the iPhone 5 in the rumour department

Former Windows Phone Director Robert Williams has joined the ranks of Amazon as head of the App Store, further fanning the flames of Amazon Kindle phone rumours.

Williams' expertise will undoubtedly come in very handy if the online shopping giant does release a mobile device to join the ranks of the Kindle Fire and rumoured Kindle Fire 2, but at this stage the move could be no more than an innocent career change.

Whether or not that's the case, it's hard not to get a little curious given the recent rumours of a 4-5in Foxconn-manufactured Kindle phone, so join us in the sidelines as we watch the speculation unravel.
