Google Andy Rubin, who created Android and has led its development both at Android Inc. and later at Google, has decided to step down as the big Android boss at Google. Having created the world's "most-used mobile operating system", as Google CEO Larry Page refers to it, I'd say his stint has been successful. Interestingly enough, he will be succeeded by Sundar Pichai - Chrome OS boss. Yes.

it means the average person who buys an android does not use it on line! Probably because they are intimidated.


Crazy stuff you put down there in writing ;) I've had Android phones for more than 2 years now, and there's been only a couple of times that I used them "on line!" as you put it, and by that you probably mean some mobile data connection. I used them plenty over wifi, but very seldomly for browsing. I always had a light laptop for doing that (now I used an xps13 for that).

Why not using more the phones' data plans? Because they are crazy expensive! Especially so if I'd happen to cross borders, which I do quite often.

Intimidated my a**. They just might be a bit over their early teens, have something more to do besides browsing on their mobile devices, or just figured out that those things can be used for more than browsing. So, every stat builder should just stick their mobile browser stats where they want, because there are quite a number of people out there, who do not believe that the number of people browsing from iOS means something.
