Many people saw Andy Rubin as Google’s Steve Jobs. He has been removed from the Android product completely. Google tries to spin it differently but since Mr. Rubin doesn’t have a new job yet, he’s been dismissed.
The International Data Corporation (IDC) currently shows Android’s OS with a large lead over Apple in the marketplace but that may change very soon. TechNewsWorld claims that the Android OS is very susceptible to viruses and major tablet and smart phone companies like Samsung are quite upset.
Google has been working with the Android platform for quite some time in addition to it’s very own Chrome OS. With Rubin out of the Android picture with Google, TechNewsWorld sees Google moving to Chrome OS as a mirror image of Microsoft leaving their Windows 98 OS in favor of a total rework to Windows XP. Expect some growing pains.
