I know this would never ever happen, at least not in our lifetimes..... but just for the sake of discussion lets say Tim Cook slipped and hit his head one day and decided to license out iOS how do you think that would affect the Mobile market? what would you think about it? without getting into the logistics, lets just say they make it work by selecting only a few manufacturers and making it easy to upscale apps in the app store. I bet Samsung would buddy up with Apple right away and make an iOS Galaxy, HTC may see it as an opportunity for revival..... Users who desire those bigger screens but are tied in to iOS wouldn't have to compromise.... Most importantly what would that mean for the battle between iOS and Android?
