Android VP Hugo Barra jumps ship for Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi


Google’s VP of Project Management, Hugo Barra, is reportedly leaving the company for Chinese smartphone manufacturer, Xiaomi.  This type of news isn’t normally expected, especially after having a successful Nexus 7 launch and the unforgettable Chromecast which is still in high demand.

Barra started at Google in 2008 where he was initially a group project manager, but quickly rose through the ranks to become the public face of Google.  He is, however, making a new stand at Xiaomi, an Android based smartphone manufacturer, which according to MacWorld outsold Apple in smartphones for the Chinese market. We wish Barra the best!
