Nobody is going to switch to Android for maps (well very few anyway), especially given the alternatives on the iPhone.
As for the elementary logic, well, whatever, sometimes the most effective solutions are the simplest. As I said before, Google is not foolish enough to believe Apple customers will abandon the platform over Maps, and they need iOS users far more than Apple needs them, missteps with Maps or not.
Whether Googles strategy will be effective or not is irrelevant, the fact is Google has to be planning something more than just sitting around enjoying the screws being tightened on Apple by the media.
