Avi Greengart, research director, consumer devices, for mobile technology research firm Current Analysis, agrees that Google will be Amazon’s toughest competitor. “Google is tired of Amazon staking out the largest position in Android tablets without actually using any of Google's services, and it has decided to see if it can play in that market as well,” he adds.
