Google CEO regrets Nokia's choice, hails Android success

Nancy Gohring and Mikael Ricknäs | Feb. 15, 2011
Google CEO Eric Schmidt took to the stage at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona Tuesday to talk up the Android operating system for tablets and phones and to say the search giant would have liked Nokia as a partner.

Referencing Google's entrant into the browser wars, Schmidt said that there are 120 million active users of Chrome.

Meanwhile, the company's YouTube video site remains a force to be reckoned with: Schmidt said that 35 hours of video is uploaded every minute to the site. Its revenue doubled in 2010, he said, and Google is monetizing professional content.

Schmidt refused to be drawn on a question from the audience on Android fragmentation, a concern for some developers.
