It’s a well known fact that people tend to overestimate the impact technology will have in the short term, but underestimate its significance in the longer term. Many users coming online today may never use a desktop machine, and the impact of that transition will be profound–as will the ability to just tap and pay with your phone. That’s why it’s a great time to be in the mobile business, and why I’m confident Dennis and the team at Motorola will be creating the next generation of mobile devices that will improve lives for years to come.
The quote that stands out to me is the bit about using a mobile phone to just tap and pay for things. That seems like a weird thing to champion in an announcement about Google finally having a hardware partner for Android — in a more official capacity.
