Google’s Eric Schmidt recently sat down for a talk, and laid out his top three priorities for the near future. To our delight they were all mobile mobile related, therefore Android related. They can be broken down simply as; Move forward from 3G to 4G/LTE, Make NFC aka Mobile Money a new standard, and make more inexpensive Android phones that can reach the masses. None of this is groundbreaking news in itself, but it does give us a glimpse as to the priorities for the company and its future. Read on and let us know what you think.
Harvard Business Review says:
First, we must focus on developing the underlying fast networks (generally called LTE). These will be 8-to-10-megabit networks, roughly 10 times what we have today, which will usher in new and creative applications, mostly entertainment and social, for these phone platforms.
Second, we must attend to the development of mobile money. Phones, as we know, are used as banks in many poorer parts of the world—and modern technology means that their use as financial tools can go much further than that.
Third, we want to increase the availability of inexpensive smartphones in the poorest parts of the world. We envision literally a billion people getting inexpensive, browser-based touchscreen phones over the next few years.
