    Default Andy Rubin Resigns as Head of Android


    It's an announcement poised to be viewed by some as a detrimental blow to Android's surging momentum.

    On Wednesday, Google's Android chief Andy Rubin announced that he is leaving the Android team (although he will remain with Google in an undefined capacity).

    Confirmation of Rubin’s move came from Google Chief Executive Larry Page.

    “He believed that aligning standards around an open-source operating system would drive innovation across the mobile industry,” Page says of Rubin. “Most people thought he was nuts. But his insight immediately struck a chord because at the time it was extremely painful developing services for mobile devices.”

    Page says Rubin recently determined that “it’s time to hand over the reins and start a new chapter at Google.” Rubin will be replaced by Sundar Pichai, a veteran of the Chrome browser and Apps teams at Google.

    “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,” Page writes, praising Rubin's contributions to the Android ecosystem.

    This won't do anything good or bad for android. If he was so essential google wouldn't move him, or they would and he could still communicate with them easily.

    Where did it say that it was Google's decision and not his?
