Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt believes Facebook Home is a testament to the company's open approach to mobile. Speaking at AllThingsD's Dive into Mobile conference, Schmidt responded to an attendee asking a question regarding Microsoft Windows Phone chief Terry Myerson's recent statements on Facebook Home. Myerson said he would be "very surprised" if Google wasn't attempting to block Facebook's replacement Android launcher. Schmidt, fired up, asked "why are you listening to Microsoft's statements about Google?" He then asked for the question to be rephrased into a question about Google before calling Facebook Home a "tremendous endorsement" of Google's Play Store strategy.
