In his Mobile World Congress keynote address, Google CEO Eric Schmidt describes the mobile ecosystem as a confluence of computing power, connectivity and cloud computing, and proclaims a new focus for the industry: putting mobile first.
With the help of two impressive demonstrations of Google Android-based mobile applications, company CEO Eric Schmidt addressed a rapt audience at his keynote presentation for the Mobile World Congress, in Barcelona, Spain, laying out a vision for the future of mobile computing that could be distilled into a single phrase: Mobile first.
"The basic message is pretty simple. The confluence of these three factors (computing, connectivity and the cloud) means your phone is your alter ego, an extension of everything we do," Schmidt concluded. "Here, right now, we understand the new rule is 'mobile first' in everything. Perhaps the phrase should be 'mobile first' simply because it's time to be proud of what we have built together. Our job is to make mobile be the answer to everything."
