Google CEO Larry Page told analysts Thursday that the company is "quite focused" on supporting or making lower-end tablet devices and dismissed concerns about Android's revenue as an irrelevant "short-term focus." Google reported rising first-quarter profits but a second straight quarter of declining click-through rates for its core advertising business. The company has yet to fully monetize its mobile-search clicks, but Chief Financial Officer Patrick Pichette dismissed concerns as premature given the market maturity of mobile. "We're where search was in 2002 or 2003," he said.
Google has long-term Android vision, eyes low-end tablets
