The two CEOs reportedly had a phone conversation last week and lower-level officials are also in discussions. Cook and Page will are expected to talk again soon. A meeting was apparently schedule for this Friday but has been delayed for reasons unknown.
One possible scenario under consideration could be a truce involving disputes over basic features and functions in Google's Android mobile software, one source said. But it's unclear whether Page and Cook are discussing a broad settlement of the various disputes between the two companies - most of which involve the burgeoning mobile computing area - or are focused on a more limited set of issues.
Apple's decisive win over Samsung in court last week may make negotiations easier for the company going forward. A jury found Samsung owed Apple over $1 billion in damages for infringing on their designs and patents.
