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!
