But why? Andy Rubin apparently wants to start an incubator for hardware startups.
Meanwhile, his role will be taken over by James Kuffner, a research scientist at Google company and a professor at Carnegie Mellon University. Google CEO Larry Page gave the usual parting ways speech in regards to Andy Rubin, with added thanks: “I want to wish Andy all the best with what’s next,” Page said in a statement. “With Android he created something truly remarkable-with a billion plus happy users. Thank you.”
Best of luck to you, Andy. And thanks for helping with the construction of one of the world’s strongest and best mobiel operating systems.
