Google (GOOG) CEO Larry page on Wednesday confirmed that Android boss Andy Rubin is leaving his current position at Google. “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,” Page wrote in a post on Google’s blog. Sundar Pichai will now head the Android team and he will also continue to lead Google’s efforts with Chrome and Apps.
