Andy Rubin: Google Has "No Plans" To Launch Retail Stores

February 26, 2013

In a roundtable discussion with reporters today, Google's head of Android Andy Rubin came right out and flatly denied the search giant was considering the launch of retail locations. "Google has no plans and we have nothing to announce," Rubin was reported as as saying by AllThingsD's Ina Fried. Curiously, Rubin's explanation for why Google doesn't need stores was basically the exact opposite of argument from third-party observers about why it does.

Rubin said that consumers "don't have to go in the store and feel [products] anymore," according to ATD.
