Co-founder of Android might be interested in launching a new smartphone company

Andy Rubin

According to a new report, co-founder and chief architect of #Android, Andy Rubin might be looking to make a comeback in the mobile industry with a new smartphone brand of his own. However, it’s unclear at this point as to whether Rubin will play an important role in the proceedings or if he will simply fund the project as he has done with several other companies.

Since leaving Google last year, Rubin has been a venture capitalist given his partnership with Redpoint Ventures. At this point, there’s very little information on what this smartphone would look like or if it will run Android. But given Rubin’s history with Android, we don’t see it panning out any other way.

This is still an early report, so we suggest you don’t jump to conclusions just yet. It is said that Rubin is also actively trying to hire new people for the project, so this could take off before we know it. We’ll keep you posted on any new developments in the matter. In the meantime, make sure you let us know what you think of this report.
