Google chief Eric Schmidt hails the smartphone future

Mobile phones in the future will be able to monitor our health, alert us to nearby sales and “do things that we haven’t even begun to think of”, Google’s chief executive and chairman Eric Schmidt told the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on Tuesday evening.Promising a world in which a further two billion people would be connected by mobile phone, Schmidt said that “pretty soon, in a year or two, with the phones many of you have already and the tablets, you will never forget anything. Starting soon it will be possible to remember the hotels you went to, the pictures you took, the friends you met, because computer memories last forever.”He denied that Google was being affected by the rapid rise of the social networking site Facebook, insisting that Microsoft remained the search company’s biggest rival.To read this report in The Guardian in full, see:
