    Microsoft Executive fired for discussing new Nokia Windows Phone

Microsoft’s head of IE Mobile for Windows Phone, Joe Marini, had his world come crashing down on him last night after he revealed the new Nokia handset on Twitter.

He even had the nerve to rate it “a solid 8 [out of 10]“, which probably pushed Microsoft over the edge and made their decision final.

Marini tweeted a total of two times last night about the new handset, the first tweet saying: “I just got a chance to try out one of the slickest looking #Nokia phones I have ever seen. Soon, you will too! #wp7.”

You’re probably thinking that’s not too bad, but he then went onto answering questions about the device saying that it felt good, had a responsive UI, but the camera didn’t have optimal lighting and he’d like a larger screen.

Now, you’d think that someone would know not to talk about unreleased handsets if you’re working for the company that’s partially working on the handset, especially if that company is Microsoft! That’s not a job I’d want to be fired from.

After Marini rated the phone a “solid 8″, that’s definitely going to have some sort of affect on sales I’d have thought, seen as though he has over 1,300 followers on Twitter and this news is all over the place now!

The tweets have also been removed, most likely at the request of Microsoft.
