Google exec says Android acquisition its "best deal ever"

Google gives Android a big hug - calls it the best acquisition ever

He went into greater detail saying he did have initial skepticism about the deal and recalls saying "I hope this guy does saying" after seeing Andy Rubin around the building for two years.
