Google's CEO, Larry Page, hints at cheap Android tablets

Google CEO Larry Page has hinted the internet giant could enter the low-cost tablet market. Google's Android platform has grown significantly in recent years, with market research firm Canalys recently releasing figures showing the operating system now accounts for 48.8 per cent of the smartphone market.

Google has also enjoyed success with the launch of its Google Nexus devices, which were manufactured by Samsung and HTC, and it also has an agreement in place to purchase mobile phone giant Motorola.

Speaking to online analyst firm Seeking Alpha, Page said: "There's going to be a lot of success at the lower end of the market as well with lower-price products. It's definitely an area we think is important and we're quite focused on".
