Google Says Mobile Will Dwarf the Web; Microsoft Could be the Loser

“One day mobile searches and mobile revenue will far outpace those from the Web “
Google CEO Eric Schmidt.
One day mobile searches and mobile revenue will far outpace those from the Web, believes Google CEO Eric Schmidt. He doesn’t expect that to happen any time soon. But if he’s right, the big winner will be Google, and the big loser likely Microsoft.According to Reuters, Schmidt told the TechCrunch Disrupt conference in San Francisco:”Eventually we think mobile will be the majority of the searches and the majority of the revenue, but it’s a long time.”Key to Google’s success on mobile is its development of Android and giving it away to phone makers, because Google is the default search engine, mapping app, email app, and more on Android. So the lion’s share of ad revenue comes its way.
