Microsoft has posted a new job opening for a Software Development Engineer in testing for Windows Phone 7. In the brief we see "DISRUPT THE MARKET" being used, indicating some potential big plans for the platform for end-users. 

This could possibly have something to do with Skype? Or is it to do with the US army trailing smartphones for deployment? We could take this even further and tie in the recent augmented reality license Microsoft signed. What do you guys think of this job posting and the project? See the post after the break and sound off in the comments.
