During an interview with Bloomberg on Wednesday, which was a part of a publicity tour for his book “How Google Works,” Google executive chairman Eric Schmidt and co-author and SVP Jonathan Rosenberg commented on the state of affairs between iOS and Google and Apple’s new iPhones.
Schmidt said, that competition between the both companies is more keen than ever before, with “enormous, enormous racing” going on between Apple and Google, which ultimately has “enormous benefits for consumers worldwide.”
“This brutal competition between Apple and Google over Android and iOS has enormous benefits for consumers worldwide. If you look at the innovation on the Apple side and on the Google side, that competition which I think is the defining fight of the computer industry, it benefits global at the billions of people level.”
When asked about Apple’s iPhones, Google executive chairman said: “I’ll tell you what I think. Samsung had these products a year ago.”
The entire interview is worth to watch. Schmidt is currently on a book tour to promote his How Google Works.
“It’s always good to have more competitors, but trust me, between Apple and Google you’re seeing enormous, enormous racing,”- Schmidt stated.
