Google has hinted that it's rumoured forthcoming tablet will compete with Amazon's Kindle Fire rather than high-end slates such as Apple's iPad 3.

The online advertising giant's CEO, Larry Page, told financial analysts that Google believes there will be "a lot of success at the lower end" of the tablet market, Mobile Today reports.
