I am not sure what to make of Google CEO Eric Schmidt’s proclamation that Google’s new mantra is “Mobile First.” According to eWeek Schmidt went on to describe how mobile phones are no longer called mobile phones and rather just phones. Users have adopted them and realized how much they can do with them. As a BlackBerry user that sounds about right.
Where Schmidt lost me is when he mentioned his belief that with the new Mobile First doctrine Google programmers will be doing work on mobile applications first. He says this is because mobile apps are better and more satisfying. I wonder if this means that Google will be making a huge push further into the mobile app space.
Honestly I am just hoping Google gets off their lazy… and creates a mobile app for Google Reader! What do you think?
