Legal And just like that, within a matter of days, the jury has reached a verdict in Apple vs. Samsung. The basic gist is simple: Apple's software patents are valid, and many Samsung devices infringe upon them. Apple's iPhone 3G trade dress is valid, and Samsung's Galaxy S line infringes, but other devices did not. Samsung did not infringe Apple's iPad design patent. Apple did not infringe any of Samsung's patents. Apple is awarded a little over $1 billion in damages. Competition lost today, and developers in the United States should really start to get worried - software patents got validated big time today.

That is an interesting question, unless the jury was blind there is no possibility of mistaking an S class device with an iPhone.


Yep. I picked up an S3 after placing my iPhone 4s in my pocket. First impression was that the S3 was, relatively speaking, a large thin turd by comparison....imho of course.
