Tom Moss -one of the early developers for Google Android, former Nextbit co-founder and Razer’s head of mobile business has relinquished his position as Razer’s VP and head of mobile business in a move that suggests he is quitting the mobile phone industry at large. This is coming just after the release of the decently specced Razer phone 2.
While it isn’t clear who steps in his shoe, Tom isn’t just leaving the company, he is as well saying goodbye to the smartphones market for a completely newly found endeavour. In an elaborate post released hours ago, Tom Moss is taking over as the COO of Skydio – a Redwood City, California-based startup that makes drones that fly themselves thanks to the work of an amazing team of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and computer vision pioneers.
Just like the pre – 2007 smartphone era, Tom Moss believes that drones are still in the dumb stage, and a career with Skydio will help revolutionise drone into full-fledged “flying computers.” In a sort of goodbye message, Tom who has been very instrumental since he joined Razer till the point it released the Razer phone 2 said he had a great time with Razer “It’s a great team of people and an amazing community of fans. Will always be a proud member of the cult of Razer (but not getting a tattoo).”
