He didn't exactly go on at length about them, but Google CEO Eric Schmidt has laid out three clear priorities for the company in a brief guest article for the Harvard Business Review -- and, not surprisingly, they're "all about mobile." Those include focusing on "developing the under­lying fast networks," or what Schmidt notes is "generally called LTE," pushing the development of NFC-based "mobile money" and, last but not least, increasing the availability of inexpensive smartphones in the poorest parts of the world. On that latter point, Schmidt seems to be especially optimistic, saying that he envisions "literally a billion people getting inexpensive, browser-based touchscreen phones over the next few years." Hit up the source link below to read Schmidt's take on the "big mobile revolution" for yourself.
