On Monday at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco, Google CEO Eric Schmidt did a wide-ranging interview  in which he shared new details about where Google sees the mobile revolution heading in the years ahead.

Schmidt talked about:

  • The next version of Android (codenamed “Gingerbread”)
  • Turning phones into digital wallets
  • Integrating Near Field Communications (NFC) into next-gen smartphones
  • Net Neutrality in the wireless world
  • The differences between Android and Chrome OS
  • Google’s approach to building its own devices

The Google chief also showed off an “unannounced” Android device running Gingerbread. This appears to confirm the recent rumors about the Google Nexus S, the successor to the Nexus One that is supposedly built by Samsung (similar to Galaxy S) and runs the stock Android OS and will be available through T-Mobile rather than being an unlocked device like the Nexus One.
