Apple wins infringement case versus Samsung for $ 1.049 Bn

Saturday, August 25, 2012

Wow is not even going to cover this. The court released the much anticipated verdict of the infringement case filed by Apple against Samsung - and they won! The court awarded Apple $ 1.049 billion in damages. The complaint stemmed from the patents which Samsung allegedly copied from the iPhone. One of these features are the bounce back (the animation that happens when you get to the end of your apps display) which  the South Korean manufacturer put on their Droid Charge and Galaxy Tab.

Oooh, this is definitely going to hurt the Android platform. I wonder how many infringement cases Apple will file after this? And exactly how vulnerable is the OS right now? Would they consider investing in Windows Phone 8?
