Steve Kondik is a name that nearly every Android fan or developer will know very well, the man behind CyanogenMod and all round Android Legend has decided to call it a day at Samsung without given hints as to what lays ahead for his career.
The announcement that he had left Samsung wasn’t a huge one, it was literally a comment in a post discussing the S4 on his Google+ page today.
I got to spend some quality time with the S4 (final hardware) before I left Samsung. I’m a huge fan of the S3 and use one everyday, so I was quite pleased with the S4. Yeah, there is no refresh of the industrial design other than a few minor things such as the edging, but the device actually feels quite a bit more solid than the S3. Specwise, this device blows the competition out of…
There are several reasons being touted though Steve himself has said that his departure from the worlds strongest mobile OEM was no "because of anything in particular" and that "Samsung was great. Just decided to do something new.".
Some folk are already suggesting that he will end up at Google somewhere but personally I reckon he will take some time out to enjoy his CyanogenMod work all over again.
