Google "Google's Chrome and Android operating systems will remain separate products but could have more overlap, Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt said, a week after the two came under a single boss." That's that, then.

It's very unlikely that these vendors will switch to their own android version.
They have to do this "Cold Turkey" style because the license treats this as forking, and if you fork android - you are not allowed to use the Google version.
They will loose early code access, they will have to build a new app store overnight, and even if they find a decent google maps replacement - many people will still be disappointed.
This is why Samsung will develops a new OS (Tizen)
