Andy Rubin: Google built a ‘firewall’ between Android and Motorola

Andy Rubin, Google‘s senior vice president in charge of mobile, said he is “painfully aware” of the concerns, but stressed that Google has “literally built a firewall” between the Android team and Motorola. The handset maker that Google last year agreed to acquire for $12.5 billion. The deal is expected to close within days or weeks.

The recent news that Google would be installing its own CEO to replace Motorola‘s former-CEO Sanjay Jha again made some scared, even though such a move makes perfect sense. Now, it’s Android head Andy Rubin’s turn to try to reassure people that nothing will change with Android. Rubin made it out to seem that he is in the dark about what is happening with Motorola, saying that he doesn’t know who is running the division.

He also doesn’t seem convinced that Google is about to turn Motorola into a market-leading smartphone business. “Even if I was completely insane, it wouldn’t make any sense for me to think that we could get Motorola to be 90 plus percent marketshare,” he said. “It just isn’t gonna happen.” You’re not wrong, Andy.
