In accordance to a record out of Recode, it didn’t take lengthy for former Motorola boss, Rick Osterloh, to discover a candy new gig. Osterloh, after fleeing Motorola just last month, has landed at Google as a brand new senior vice chairman who will head up a brand new hardware department that objectives to unify the corporate’s many tasks, together with Chromecast, OnHub, ATAP, Glass, Chromebooks, and sure, Nexus units.
Google has it seems that showed the addition of Osterloh.
In accordance to Recode, Osterloh will paintings on Nexus hardware construction along Android SVP Hirsohi Lockheimer, who would possibly center of attention somewhat extra going ahead on device and platform construction. He’ll additionally take over the lead on Chromecast hardware tasks, Chromebook and Pixel units, OnHub routers, ATAP (the whacky stuff that Google makes), and Google Glass (or simply “Glass”). However wait, isn’t Nest boss Tony Fadell overseeing Glass? He used to be, however with Osterloh on the helm, Fadell will reportedly keep hooked up best as an “consultant.”
Whilst I don’t know Rick for my part, I do get the sensation that he's in style within the business after having handled him and Motorola through the years. Now not that Google hasn’t been similarly as relaxing to paintings with, however with Osterloh on board, I’d believe issues can most effective recover for each media family members and on a product entrance that may sooner or later finish with units on your palms.
Dance, Rick, dance.
