Apple Patent Strategy, Litigate for Max Returns

In the Apple vs Android patent wars - Apple patent strategy, litigate for max returns.
Deutsche Bank’s Chris Whitmore (via Philip Elmer-Dewitt) assumes that Apple will win its patent litigation against Android manufacturers and will either
  1. Get $10 royalty on every Android device sold
  2. Capture 25% of Android’s future market share
Both scenarios leading to an increase in Apple share price.

Good for Apple shareholders, bad for the overall industry.

Meanwhile, Apple is expected to deliver record earnings, to be announced on Jan 24, 2012.
