Eric Schmidt on the Future of Android, Motorola, Cars and Humanity (Video)

Eric Schmidt is a man with a lot to say.

He just penned a 300-page book covering, you know, the future of technology and humanity. Speaking at last month’s D: Dive Into Mobile conference, Schmidt talked about those issues and more.

After beginning with reflections on his recent trips to North Korea and Myanmar, Schmidt also talked about the first crop of Motorola products due in the coming months, the impact of driverless cars, and where Android is headed.

“Our goal with Android is to reach everyone,” Schmidt told Liz Gannes and Ina Fried. “We’ll cross one billion Android devices in six to nine months. In a year or two, we’ll hit two billion.”

As for those Motorola products, Schmidt didn’t give away too much, saying only that they represent “phones-plus,” and that they are both “phenomenal” and “very, very impressive.”

We’ll hope to get a lot more specific when Motorola head Dennis Woodside takes his turn in the red chair at our upcoming D11 conference.
