I'm really skeptical. Here's what I think happened.
Tim cook: *rubs hands* HTC are going DOWN! Yehaaaa!
Corporate Lawyer: do you think that is a good thing?
Tim: Yeah huh. One less to compete with...
Lawyer: So HTC customers will come to Apple?
Lawyer: They won't stick with Android?
Tim: Oh, well maybe
Lawyer: Most likely candidate?
Tim: Samsung?... Wait.... SAMSUNG? Oh no, oh no, oh no....... No more power to Samsung..... What can we do?????? ARRGGHHHHHH
Lawyer: Settle with HTC, keep them in the market. The more Android OEM's the better. Power is distributed.
Tim: Make it so.
