It was reported in the Daily Mail on Wednesday that Google boss, Eric Schmidt served notice that they are stepping up their assault on the mobile telecoms market.
In a potentially far reaching strategic shift, Google will make the bulk of its new services available for handsets before it puts them on desktop computers. “This is a first for us”, Schmidt told executives at the mobile World Congress in Barcelona. “The new rule is mobile first in everything.”
The move marks a change of tack for Google, which has built its impregnable position in the online advertising on the back of its raft of computer tools such as search engine and Gmail service.
