Talking tech since 2003

Google has just announced that Andy Rubin is stepping down as head of Android — he’ll be replaced by Sundar Pichai who is currently the senior VP of Chrome and Apps. Pichai will keep his current duties, in addition to his new ones.

Google CEO, Larry Page, announced the change on Google’s blog today and judging from the sound of the blog post, it appears as if Rubin decided to step down on his own.  It also seems that Andy Rubin will remain at Google in a currently unspecified role.

We’ll keep you posted if anything further develops.
