Android co-founder Andy Rubin gives glimpse of secret device he's working on
While Andy Rubin's secretive startup Essential has yet to confirm its product plans, the Android co-founder made his intention to build a phone pretty evident on Monday.
Rubin posted a photo with just a sliver of a phone peeking out, revealing little beyond a modern-looking smartphone.
"I'm really excited about how this is shaping up," Rubin said on Twitter. "Eager to get it in more people's hands...."
Why it matters: Essential is reportedly seeking a $1 billion valuation with hopes of making a significant impact in a mobile market dominated by Apple and Samsung.
