Google CEO Eric Schmidt said in an interview with Bloomberg said that his company is the new Microsoft. With a mobile operating system, Android, that wins on all fronts. Both Apple and other players in this market.
Schmidt says in the interview that "the war between Google and Apple is won by us'. What really no miracle, given that Apple only one iron in the fire (the iPhone) and Android manufacturers now hundreds of devices on the market have brought. Schmidt startled nevertheless not hesitate to assert that the populatiteit of Android, that nearly 70 percent of the mobile market in hands, similar to the battle between Microsoft and Apple twenty years ago.
When Microsoft won the PC market with its operating system license for each PC manufacturer who wanted, and Apple with its exclusive OS own computers continued to make. The analogy is not quite, because Apple at that time did not intend to Microsoft defeat. In contrast to the preparation of Apple against Android now, the OS of Google with fire and sword contested by Apple.
Schmidt commented:'' Our strategy is similar to making a bigger pie. In this way we get finally a not so perfectly controlled and not really controlled bigger pie, which is part of open systems.'' What he admits that Android will remain always problems with such security as a result of the decision to open to continue operating.
