Google CEO says “It’s the principle of mobile first”

Google’s CEO Eric Schmidt spoke at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona today and stated that the mobile movement is upon us and that he’s “enormously proud to be part of this. I’m proud to be here”. Google has come to the forefront of the industry with their Android OS and more importantly their first foray into devices with the Nexus One.

Schmidt also said “It’s the principle of mobile first… It’s like magic. All of a sudden there are things that you can do that didn’t really occur to you… because of this convergence point… That time is upon us – right now, right here, for this year and at least the next many years.”

In Canada, rumoured carriers to bring on the Nexus One are Wind Mobile or Mobilicity (Dave Wireless).
