In what can only be considered fantastic news for the Android platform, one of the main forces behind Palm’s lovely and easy to use webOS user interface, Matias Duarte, has joined fellow Danger Inc. alum Andy Rubin on Google’s Android development team.  Duarte is now the User Experience Director for Android.

For those of you that don’t keep tabs on what happens in the non-Android world, it’s worth noting that HP recently announced that it was buying Palm.
