Mobile is the next big thing and no company can ignore smartphones and technologies that drive mobile applications, Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt said today.
“In the near term, the next big thing is mobile. As it was last year and the year before that,” Schmidt said here at a Nasscom event on the launch of an initiative on catalysing start-ups in India.
Emphasising on the growth in smartphone usage and mobile computing, he said businesses should have their best developers working on their mobile applications.
“As smartphones are growing, mobile apps are also going to be a big thing and no company can ignore that,” he said.
Larry Page said something similar during their quarterly report. Something along the lines of apps are the new web sites, and a convergence is happening with mobile apps and web sites.
