Andy Rubin's farewell email to Android partners hints again at his future in the X Lab
Earlier today, Google CEO Larry Page announced that Android co-founder Andy Rubin was stepping down as head of the Android team. Now, we're getting the first words from Andy Rubin about the move as Andy has written an e-mail to Android Open Handset Alliance partners to say goodbye, in which he has hinted, just as Page did, that Rubin's future is in Google's X Lab.

The letter reads:
The key is the end there, where we've bolded the text. In Larry Page's announcement, he said he was looking for "more moonshots" from Rubin, which we took as a hint that Rubin would be moving into the X Lab, and we think this is another clue that the X Lab is in Rubin's future. The best place to create new products that can "transform computing for people everywhere" is in the X Lab after all.
