OMG this is big news. Punit Soni is joining Flipkart.
 
The next step

I have spent the past few months contemplating on what the next step of my career should be. After almost 8 years at Google, the only gig that would make sense is one with a overwhelming sense of potential, of impact that could span billions and move countries. 

I am moving to India for the next few years to help build Flipkart into a world class product and engineering company in the capacity of their Chief Product Officer. As I explored ideas across sectors and across different life stages of companies, I flew down to India to personally see the change spreading across the country at the intersection of a mobile revolution spearheaded by phones like Moto G, and hundreds of entrepreneurs reinventing every aspect of life out there. Flipkart stood out as the single biggest platform of change in the new internet economy. 

The energy in Bangalore feels like the Valley and Flipkart with a footprint of millions is at the forefront. It is the opportunity to create the biggest impact and made sense after the amazing journey at Google. 

My goal and mandate will be to help build the world’s best product company with a global ambition. Over time, we will build programs to attract the best talent to Bangalore and also establish a significant presence back home in the Valley. The overwhelming scope of the task feels like the right next step in my journey, and its success will depend on a lot of things including your support.

Thanks to all the amazing people who mentored me through this process. Onwards to the next step!

Go Android !!!!
 
Rule of 5?

2014 smartphone sales:

1 Blackberry phone sold for every 5 Windows phones.
1 Windows phone sold for every 5 iOS phones.
1 iOS phone sold for every 5 Android phone.

Android FTW!

It's actually pretty cool that I played a central role on the Android platform side.

What's even better on the coolness scale is that as an application developer I can now write an app once and have it compatible with about a billion and a half devices, which is probably an unprecedented scale.

It's a good time to be in the mobile industry.
IDC's latest numbers on smartphone market share make it clear - the smartphone OS wars are pretty much over, and only two champions are left. In the green corner is Android, in the blue corner is iOS, and between them they accounted for 96.3% of smartphones shipped in 2014.

I have no idea how Microsoft Windows is a success. A 10 minute task that I needed today was delayed by 3 working days because of the abomination called Windows. Ugh. #linuxtotherescue
