Andy Rubin reportedly considers starting a company to build new Android smartphones
This time, Rubin is said to be interested in building a new Android handset, perhaps a high-end unit that would compete in the same space as the Apple iPhone. The project could be well funded thanks to Rubin's own $300 million Playground Fund, which invests in start-up situations. He also has connections among venture capitalists. With Rubin's resume, finding cash to fund a new venture shouldn't be a problem, anyway.
Rubin is reportedly looking for people to join him in his new business. It also is unclear whether Rubin would be running this new company. If Andy Rubin succeeds in hardware as he did in software, Android fans just might have an exciting new phone to look forward to.
Thanks for the tip!
