Oh... and once they get that accomplished, they can go right back to doing business with Google in terms of maps, search, email, etc...
They don't have to kill Google, and probably don't want to even try, but they certainly could get Google to drop Android if it serves their escape from a massive lawsuit and trouble... 99% of Google's revenue is from internet-based operations anyway, so dropping Android would not be a big deal for them in the big picture... but it would be big for another company (Sony) that could use a pre-fabbed OS to wall off for their own purposes, and for other companies (Apple, Microsoft) that would like more customers to feel obligated to buy a licensed copy of their competing OS products, rather than being free to go with an open-source ecosystem (Google).
