Google Goes Mobile

Posted By: Lulu Chiang

With so much of the focus on developing a worthy rival to Apple's iPhone , it's no surprise that Google's attempt has been in focus. The tech titan launched its Nexus One in January, a phone dubbed as "a convergence point for mobile technology, apps and the Internet."

Maria Bartiromo caught up with Google's President of Global Sales Operations & Business Development Nikesh Arora at the World Economic Forum's annual meeting. Even though there has been a flood of new smartphones being launched, Arora said that all of this is "useful from a mobile data perspective."

Everyone's Talking About China

Posted By: Kim Khan
