Google and Apple are discussing patents and a possible deal that may drastically alter the way the two companies are acting with each other in the courtrooms.
The information comes from Reuters which says that “people familiar with the matter” have told them that Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook and Google Chief Executive Officer Larry Page are holding talks about patents.
According to the news organization’s sources, Cook and Page have had a conversation over the phone about patents.
Furthermore, several “lower-level” officials from both camps are also discussing patents, Reuters says.
The talks come in the wake of Apple’s massive legal win against Samsung in California last month. Samsung is the world’s largest smartphones vendor and the biggest ally Google has with the Android mobile operating system.
The Apple and Google CEOs will be talking more in the coming weeks, Reuters’ sources reveal.
