Andy Rubin, the man who helped maneuver Android into the No. 1 mobile OS position, is stepping down as head of Android at Google. Taking Rubin’s place will be browser and applications chief Sundar Pichai. The reshuffling effectively folds Google’s mobile OS, applications and Chrome browser into one operation. Google CEO Larry Page has credited Rubin for making Android what it is today. Rubin introduced Page and cofounder Sergey Brin to the platform when he visited the company in 2004.
