August 31 message, according to informed sources, Google CEO Larry Page and Apple CEO Tim Cook has been on secret negotiations about the wide range of intellectual property issues, including the mobile patent dispute.
Google and Apple CEOs had a telephone conversation last week. The negotiations between the low-level executives of the two companies are also underway.
According to informed sources disclosed on Thursday, it is expected that Page and Cook will negotiate again in the coming weeks. The original meeting held on Friday has been postponed. The reasons for the delay are unknown.
Last Friday, a jury decided Samsung would compensate Apple’s loss of $1.05 billion and may prohibit the sale of Samsung’s certain products. It is widely believed that the lawsuit is a “proxy struggle” between Apple and Google.
One possible condition being considered is truce, to eliminate disputes for the basic features and functions in Google Android mobile software. However, it is unclear whether Page and Cook is discussing settlement agreement about the various disputes between the two companies, or focusing of the discussion on the limited issues.
Page and Cook talks last week failed to reach any formal agreement. However, they agreed to continue negotiations. Apple and Google do not want to comment on any negotiations.
