Will this be the end of phones such as the Galaxy III, that are high competitors against iPhones? We still have HTC, LG, and some others, but will they be next?

    Probably keep producing them, but have to pay Apple a royalty for each one produced.

    The jury ordered Samsung to pay Apple $1.05 billion in the latest skirmish of a global legal battle between the two tech giants. An appeal is expected.

    Well, one outcome from this is that I'm unlikely to purchase another apple product anytime in the near future. I'm sorry, you can't patent a rectangle! Also this is just one battle in an ongoing patent war going on in the tech space. These days they're trying to patent everything and the end result is going to be very bad for consumers. If all these companies would spend more money on innovation and less on lawyers we'd all be much better off.

    Alpha, I agree with you. These companies need to spend more money on innovation than protecting a patent on who designed the cups with string.
