Schmidt also noted that Google had no intention of blocking access to the new app from Facebook called Facebook Home, which replaces the homescreen on Android phones.

He said that he was “phenomenally happy” with the app from Google’s rival and removing Facebook Home from Google Play store would be counter to Google’s public statements, policies and religion.

Do you own an Android phone and do you think that this OS can conquer every other mobile operating systems out there?
