Deception implies that Google couldn't do it and I don't think it was hidden fact that they just didn't want to instead (so as to privilege Android).

Caught off guard? Depends how you read it. I'd say that ending a contract prematurely certainly lends credence to the notion that they were caught off guard. Whether or not that's the case is a different story (not being privy to the internal discussions between the two companies, I don't know) but arguing that it's a flat out lie when evidence points to the contrary is suspect.
