Re: Or the fourth option...

I suspect that it would be very easy for regulators to do nothing. There's a billion Android phones in China that don't have Google, and it wouldn't take that much time to build replacements. Of course, users would complain and companies would lose money, but they would all blame Google. And then Google would lose the market.

Google apps are good; they're often the best. But the competition does exist, and is ready to take over if they stumble.
