Andy Rubin steps down as head of Android team

andy-rubinThe head of the Android team over at Google, Andy Rubin, has stepped down from his position as the head of Android. In his place, Sundar Pichai, the current VP of Chrome, will take over, according to CEO Larry Page. Rubin chose a time that he could go out on top, with millions of Android devices activated every day. This is the second head of a major mobile operating system to leave his position now, with Forstall leaving (or being ousted) from Apple earlier. It will be interesting to see where both these operating systems go in the future under new leadership.

What do you think? Wonder what Android will bring with a new executive? Let us know in the comments, or tweet me @TiP_Kyle.
