According to Gartner, over 81 million Android smartphones were sold during the first quarter of 2012, with just over 33 million iPhones selling during the same period.
Rubin also dismissed a rumour that he was leaving Google to work full time with the start-up Cloudcar. He took to Twitter, posting: “How a rumor gets factualized: Cloudcar are a group of friends who I give free office space to in my incubator in Los Altos. Revel Touch (Mar Hershenson’s company: www.reveltouch.com) is another cool company that shares this space. I’m not joining either one and I don’t have any plans to leave Google.”
Good way to quash a rumour and also publicise two start-ups he has an interest in.
