Schmidt told the newspaper that the tablet’s build would be of the highest quality, an indication that Google has no intention of duking it out with the new crop of bargain Android-based tablets, such as the Amazon Kindle Fire and Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet. Rather, it’ll compete with the next-generation iPad and premium Android slates like the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime.
