    Not bad. First post only an hour after the verdict. My hunch is a huge appeal and no impact on phones for a good long time. The winner of this might be Microsoft with Windows 8 phones.

    Personally, I feel that if there was never any news coverage of this trial, we wouldn't ever notice it. Either as an android /Samsung or iphone user.
    Even if there is a substantial award, Samsung, Google, and Apple are all plenty capable of paying.
    If I read the article correctly, Google has just filed a patent infringement case against apple, based on some Motorola patents. It's billionaires suing each other. As an end user, I just have trouble caring. The technology these people are arguing about will all be outdated in 12-18 months.

    I read there are something like 50 patent lawsuits coming. Yes, the Google one will be a biggie. Apple is suing because Android is kicking their butts. Wait till they tangle with Google. I agree, as users we will not see anything at least in the next few years. Long enough to get satellite networks running. And I still think Windows could benefit from this.

    I definately agree that Samsung has the money but are they going to lay low for a little while and stop pushing updates and stuff?

    I know this is an android forum, but I wouldn't mind a resurgence of Windows Mobile, or Windows Phone. The best experience I've ever had with a smartphone (taking into consideration the technology available) was my Touch Pro II. I had Windows phones until it was clear that you had to go Android or IOS. As a business owner who relies on many Microsoft products, having a phone that integrated seamlessly was very convenient. Android has come a long way, but when I first got my Thunderbolt I couldn't believe how unfriendly it was for business use.

    They'll change going forward, they won't likely change anything that's out right now. I mean short of making every s3 explode and giving every owner a new phone (including rooting people) they'll never change them now to get rid of patent issues. We're safe for now imo

    Are you sure having Samsung remotely explode all existing devices wasn't in Apples request for damages.
    1. 2.5 billion $.
    2. Ban all Samsung devices.
    3. Explode all existing Samsung phones.
    4. Have all Samsung users find and Iphone owner and apologize.
    5. Write "I will not copy" 1000 times on the chalkboard.
    6. Outlaw all references to the word "sheep" (my apologies to lonely farmers)

    I still do not understand how you can be found guilty in one country and innocent in another country on the same issues, I guess "$ under the table" has nothing to do with it:blink:. I guess fighting a battle against a foreign company in your own backyard is much easier and more biased in your favor, than fighting it in foreign ground, like GB, and Korea, where you lost in both cases, makes you just wonder about the judicial system, and on a side note, these jurors had no business in this trial "like your local garbage man has a clue about tech and patents" when the judge has to correct you on two of your findings "jury", it just makes it more obvious how biased this case was from the get go, it's a joke and a slap in the face to everyone involved with innovation.
    And for everyone here, forget about tap to zoom and slide to scroll, that will be eliminated from your device very soon "thanks to innovation, cough cough by Apple".

    Right u r. There's apple turds littered throughout the US, so there's a ridiculous bias to begin with. South Korea has Samsung fans, so they're biased. This b.s. lawsuit that crapple won happened at the perfect time for them. Guaranteed if this were to have happened in a few years from now, once apple products become obsolete once people realize they've stopped innovating and have taken their creativity to the court rooms, the tables would be turned in Samsung's favor. This whole escapade has given me a headache. Most bogus patents ever conceived.
