Google's Andy Rubin moves away from Android

Andy Rubin, who’d been responsible for the Android operating system as Google’s Senior Vice President of Mobile and Digital Content, is moving to a new role at Google. Sundar Pichai, who’d previously managed Chrome for Google, will now lead Android.

Mr Rubin was co-founder of mobile phone company Danger (later acquired by Microsoft) and Android, which was acquired by Google in 2005.

In a blog post, Google CEO Larry Page said “The pace of innovation has never been greater, and Android is the most used mobile operating system in the world: we have a global partnership of over 60 manufacturers; more than 750 million devices have been activated globally; and 25 billion apps have now been downloaded from Google Play. Pretty extraordinary progress for a decade’s work. Having exceeded even the crazy ambitious goals we dreamed of for Android - and with a really strong leadership team in place - Andy’s decided it’s time to hand over the reins and start a new chapter at Google. Andy, more moonshots please!”
