There's no need for Microsoft (MSFT) to make its own phone, says Windows Phone VP Terry Myerson, shooting down speculation that had come up after multiple reports last fall stated Microsoft views a home-grown as a backup plan if WP8 launches prove disappointing. Myerson states a Microsoft phone would only be necessary if "Nokia (NOK) or HTC or other primary partners were not providing the consumer experience we think was possible on our platform," something he doesn't think is the case.
