Like everyday, I come home for lunch and first thing I do is check google+. Normally it seems like a quiet day though but today not so much. Punit Soni has officially released a statement saying he is leaving Motorola. To me, this is HUGE.

Punit Soni was well known for connecting with fans and members of google+ often. He was very open (as much as he legally could be) when discussing matters dealing with Motorola and their devices. This to me is a huge loss for Motorola when everything seemed to be going so good. Good luck to Punit Soni and here's hoping that Motorola has someone who can fill his shoes.

I WOULD ENCOURAGE EVERYONE WHO READS THIS TO GO TO THE G+ POST AND LEAVE A COMMENT !!!!

 

It's the least we can do.  This guy has done so much for the community and I want him to feel the impact.  It's not very often in life that the "good guy" makes it into a position that can make a difference and supporting that will help it happen again.  Punit has stated he is going to take a breather and see where life takes him - let's give him some energy to live on :)

I saw this also. Seriously debating on passing over on the Moto X (2nd Gen). Between the concerns over the battery life and Punit leaving I'm just not comfortable enough to get one or two at this point. I know it takes more than one person to make a company but Punit was always there on Google+ answering questions and listening to our feedback. I actually had more than one private chat with him and Matt Jones regarding the Moto X Developer Edition. He really seemed to care about Android and phone freedom.

Regardless how you feel about the Moto future, this is really about him.  If you haven't already, please post on his G+ post even if you said something to him otherwise.  I think  it's important for other people to see as well.  Maybe turn one of those "haters" into a "believer" kind of thing.

I already told him he'll be missed. Won't be the same without him.

I guess we can consider the N6 our parting gift from the guy who fixed the world for us.  The emotion I feel over Punit leaving is indescribable.  I almost want to cry.  The birth of real moot, the vindiication of the Bionic faithful. The birth of the X, which some of us knew about months (a year?) before the rest of the world even believed us.  Now the N6.  One of those guys we can only repay with our hearts, sorta like the fearless leader of our house.  I expressed my wishes in his G+ thread.  Punit was moto's messiah.
