    Via MWC Blog: Google CEO Eric Schmidt in a special keynote at Congress outlined how Google’s top programmers were now concentrating on mobile as their primary focus; he also pointed to recent acquisitions in the mobile space, notably AdMob.

    Schmidt also provided an update on Google’s Android platform, which he said was now running across 26 different devices. He said that Android handset vendors were selling more than 60,000 per day, a figure that has doubled over the last quarter. During an Android demonstration, Google’s Eric Tseng announced that the platform now supports Flash – the full Flash version (10.1) rather than Flash Lite – allowing gaming and movies over handsets.

    I'm glad Google is showing a mobile commitment. I think it's going to help raise the bar.

    Google is on point right now I think they have already raised standards to the smart phones,though it does seem their devices are aimed more towards teens but hey this is just my opinion

    I've been saying for almost a year now that Android was going to bring some much needed competition to the market and get things going again. Seems its done just that and more. Full Flash support is something BB and iPhone users are still begging for. Yet the new kid on the block has it.
