Google Nexus 7 – how it’s made, Google and Asus explain

by: Chris SmithJune 28, 2012

Google on Wednesday announced the tablet we all expected, the Google Nexus 7, a Kindle Fire contender but also a device meant to show its Android partners how an Android tablet should be made in Google’s vision.

Of course, that tablet vision has changed in time, and Google’s Senior Vice President of Mobile Andy Rubin has acknowledged that fact in an interview with AllThingsD:

Rubin admits that he was upset a year ago that Android tablets just weren’t selling. After looking into some of the reasons, Rubin learned that while hardware really matters on phones, consumers are buying into a content ecosystem with tablets. Or, in Google’s [...]

Andy Rubin: I’m not leaving Google, daily Android devices activations up to 900,000

by: Bams SadewoJune 11, 2012

Let’s call it a double-edged sword. Anyone can start a rumor on the Internet, which can then easily spread like wildfire.

But said rumor can also be easily clarified with a quick tweet. The non-story began when Robert Scobble made a post on his Google+ that one of Google’s top leaders, Andy Rubin, was leaving Google to join a startup company. Here’s what he said:

“Today I heard that the head of Android, +Andy Rubin, will soon leave Google and head to a new startup called http://www.cloudcar.com/”

The Godfather of Android took to micro blogging platform Twitter to clarify that he has “no plans to leave Google”. Oh, he also tweeted that “there are [...]

Was the Android Idea Stolen by Andy Rubin?

by: Christine TorralbaJanuary 31, 2012

Here’s something AndroidPit recently shared:

Apparently, Andy Rubin (the founder of Android) was a former employee at Apple. He worked in the company of his biggest rival as their Manufacturing Engineer during the time of 1989-1992. After 11 years, Rubin founded Android. A couple of years later, he became Google’s Senior VP of Mobile.

Even though it was typical for people to bounce between companies, Rubin’s 3-year stint at Apple may be the reason why Steve Jobs felt such an intense hatred for Android. What’s even more interesting is that Steve Jobs was quoted that Android is a ‘stolen piece of software.’ Considering that Rubin used to report to inventors of the [...]

700,000 Activated Android Devices Every Day and Growing

by: Christine TorralbaDecember 21, 2011

Woah! We knew there are a lot of Android users, but we didn’t expect it would be THAT many.

What we’re referring to is the Tweet and announcement made on Google + by the brand’s very own Senior Vice President of Mobile Andy Rubin:

…and for those wondering, we count each device only once (ie, we don’t count re-sold devices), and “activations” means you go into a store, buy a device, put it on the network by subscribing to a wireless service.

The last count of 550,000 devices a day was first noted by Chairman Eric Schmidt while in Germany. The count was made earlier this year.

So in a nutshell, there are now 700,000 Android devices which get [...]
