Is Google bothered by the fact that Facebook is trying to take over Android with its “Home” software?
Listening to executive chairman, and former CEO, Eric Schmidt speaking today at the D Mobile Conference, the answer seems to be “no.”
He was asked what he thinks of Amazon and Facebook using Android as a base layer to create their own smartphone operating systems. He said he thinks its “fantastic” because it shows how open Google’s operating system really is.
Even if Facebook Home is a success, Schmidt says Google will not remove it. We are “phenomenally happy” people are taking it in other ways, says Schmidt.
