Who Is The Guy Behind Android?

This question came up directly when I read an article related to iOS 8. Wondering who the guy behind Android OS is random though. As Steve Jobs is popularly known as the Apple’s founder including the Mac, iPod, iPhone, iPad, and of course iOS. We couldn’t separate Apple and Jobs. When we talk about Apple, we talk about Jobs, and vice versa. The question is why this phenomenon doesn’t happen to Android. Well, people may know that Android is produced by Google or at least developed by Google. But in my opinion it is not as deeper when we compare it to the case of Apple and Jobs.
Not so many people know that actually Google acquired the Android Inc. founded by Andy Rubin, Rich Miner, Nick Sears, and Chris White (based on Wikipedia). Nobody can deny that Android-based smartphones and tablets are the most selling products nowadays because of the cheap prices. Based on this, the reality is Google did not develop Android from the beginning like Jobs did to Apple. Hence, it is not surprising that not so many people know the guy behind Android. People just know, Google is developing Android. Even though that now Google is also trying to develop Chrome OS.
