Senior Vice President for Product Innovation
Personal Systems Group, Hewlett-Packard
Jon Rubinstein has had a long history in the mobile market, both up and down. At Apple, he worked on the introduction of the iconic iPod. After he left, Rubinstein tried to compete with his former employer in creating the Palm and its webOS oper- ating system. That did not turn out so well, but with its new home inside Hewlett-Packard, Rubsinstein has another chance to prove himself. Will it work?
As head of the Palm global business unit, Rubinstein was leading HP's efforts in the mobility space, responsible for webOS software development and related hardware products.
Before joining Apple, Rubinstein worked at HP and NeXT, and found- ed his own company, Firepower Systems.
He received bachelor's and master's degrees in electrical engineering from Cornell University and a master's degree in computer science from Colorado State University.
