Square Steals Key Android Developer From Google

Square, the startup which may change the way consumers handle transactions, has just hired Bob Lee away from Google.  Lee, a key developer for the Android platform, is now headed to over to Square to change the world.  Square’s Buzz Anderson confirmed that Lee is now working full-time for Square and will be heading up Square’s Android App development team.

Currently, Square only works on the IPhone and the IPod Touch so it will be interesting to see how Lee develops for Android.  Presently, Square requires the use of an external hardware component which plugs into the headphone jack.  Hopefully, there will be a solution for Android soon and if there is, Lee will certainly have something to do with it. Good luck Bob!
