Eric Schmidt: ‘Mobile was winning. It’s now won’

Eric Schmidt, Google’s executive chairman, predicts a “new generation of applications” are headed our way. The tech titan told Bloomberg TV that as mobile devices win more market share from PCs, a new roster of apps will also be necessary.

“The trend has been that mobile was winning,” he said. “It’s now won. There are more tablets and phones being sold than personal computers.”

Schmidt offered a list of predictions for 2014 in the Bloomberg TV clip. The first one? “Everyone will own a smartphone.”

He covered a range of topics from big data to not anticipating the “social networking phenomena.” Watch the full video here or above.
