We are excited to bring great experiences to more homes in more countries and fulfill their dreams!”
Fadell, who is best known for “father of IPod”, had said that “thrilled to join Google.’ “With their support, Nest will be even better placed to build simple, thoughtful devices that make life easier at home, and that have a positive impact on the world”. The Nest Lab will carry on as its unique brand Identity and led by Fadell. The deal has not completed yet, waiting for standard procedure.
Fadell has given a review at 2011 TED conference before nest.
He said about Google’s Brin that “He instantly got what we were doing and so did the rest of the Google team when we showed them. In May 2011, Google Ventures led our Series B round of financing, and in 2012, Series C. Time and time again, Googlers have shown themselves to be incredibly like-minded, supportive and as big of dreamers as we are. I know that joining Google will be an easy transition because we’re partnering with a company that gets what we do and who we are at Nest – and wants us to stay that way.”
