Andy Rubin’s Essential is shutting down

Smartphone startup Essential Products, launched by Andy Rubin, announced Wednesday that it was shutting down. Former Google executive Rubin founded Essential to much fanfare in the industry, but struggled to gain traction, especially after its 2017 launch of a handset that did not find favor. The company also faced controversy over Rubin’s departure from Google on grounds of sexual misconduct.
