Apple CEO Tim Cook and Google CEO Larry Page are keeping an "open line of communications" to discuss patent-related issues, reports Reuters. Citing sources familiar with the situation, Reuters said both CEOs have spoken on the phone at least once, and other, lower-level managers have held similar discussions. Cook and Page are expected to speak again in the next few weeks. One possible topic being discussed is a settlement between the two companies regarding basic features and functions of iOS and Android that could put an end to patent litigation between Apple and Google's Android licensees. It is not clear how broad or specific a settlement is being discussed, however. The two companies have been ever more at odds with one another as they compete in the smartphone and mobile device industries. Apple CEO Tim Cook has stated in the past that he strongly dislikes litigation, and would rather settle than sue. Even so, Apple was handed a victory against Samsung last week regarding smartphone patents.
