Sundar Pichai is now android’s head

Andy Rubin, co-founder of Android, has stepped down from his role as head of Google’s Android division. Replacing him will be Sundar Pichai, an Indian American computer engineer who was the Senior Vice President of Chrome, Google Apps.

The news broke when CEO Larry Page posted a blog post saying Sundar Pichai would lead Android, in addition to his existing work with Chrome and Apps.

“Sundar has a talent for creating products that are technically excellent yet easy to use—and he loves a big bet. Take Chrome, for example. In 2008, people asked whether the world really needed another browser. Today Chrome has hundreds of millions of happy users and is growing fast thanks to its speed, simplicity and security,” he wrote.
