Andy Rubin, father of Android, departs Google

Andy Rubin, the literal man behind Android, has left Google to start up his own incubator. To be clear, he had not been part of the Android program in quite some time. Astute readers may recall learning his stepping down from Android to do “more moonshots” in the robotics department. It was early 2013 when the torch was passed to Sundar Pichai.

The timing of his departure comes just one week before Google celebrates seven years of Android and the first SDK.
