Andy Rubin No Longer Leading Android; Replaced by Chrome Exec Sundar Pichai

Larry Page:

Having exceeded even the crazy ambitious goals we dreamed of for Android — and with a really strong leadership team in place — Andy’s decided it’s time to hand over the reins and start a new chapter at Google. Andy, more moonshots please!

Going forward, Sundar Pichai will lead Android, in addition to his existing work with Chrome and Apps.

Interesting news, but I’m not sure what to make of it. Are Chrome and Android converging?
