Andy Rubin, the person who’s name has become nearly synonymous with the Android platform itself, has decided that it is time for him to move on. According to a new Google blog post, Rubin is stepping down as the Android chief, passing over the position to Sundar Pichai.


Andy Rubin

Rubin was the one who came up with the idea of an open-source mobile OS and then further developed the idea to turn it into the reality of Android. Ever since Android’s inception, Rubin had been the leading force as well as the public face of the platform.

Today, more than 750 million Android devices have been activated globally, which shows how an idea has become the major player in the realm of smartphone. Not only that, the Android users have downloaded more than 25 billion apps from the Google Play store.

Rubin’s dream of creating an open-source operating system has apparently come to fruition. And now, he wants to quit the position and try his hands at something else. According to the blog post, written by Larry Page, “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!”

Pichai, who is to resume the position in place of Rubin, has extensive expertise in Chrome and Apps. Bringing him to Android could mean that Google is trying to use his expertise and experience with apps and Chrome, for the Android platform.
