With how complex the issues are and the need for the jury to be unanimous, the deliberations seem to have been very fast. My gut says that means it went against Apple.
Unlocked Pentaband iPhone 5 (AWS), unlocked iPhone 4
Unlimited airtime, Unlimited CAN/US long distance, Unlimited SMS to CAN/US wireless numbers
2500 Call Forwarding minutes to CAN/US numbers
Google Voice for visual voice mail with message transcription, conditional greetings, unlimited messages (vs 35 message cap), remote retrieval from any PC or phone, no auto-purge after 10 days and most importantly no $7-$8 charge.
I got the impression from following the trial that, Samsung took the whole trial as a joke. I also think Samsung behaved a bit arrogant in thinking that they could get away with not submitting all their evidence, in on time, when they had plenty of time to do so.
I also think Samsung could have avoided all this mess, by just releasing a clean Android OS phone, with no skins or augmentation and forcing carriers to leave it as is with no carrier lock. Samsung may have sold more too.
I got the idea they weren't taking it seriously either. In fact since the very first lawsuit apple filed against them Samsung gave the distinct impression they considered the trials to be great press for their products. I would actually submit that one of the reasons that Samsung was able to so quickly go from a second rate mobile maker that no one cared about and into the sales leader they are now is because of the attention the lawsuits gave them. They became the standard bearer for the entire 'I hate Apple' crowd. The other vendors didn't play up the fact that they were being sued nor were they as blatant in the copying. This all have Samsung an aura of being the anti-Apple
champion to the point the followers set aside aall logic and reason and common sense.
Worst case for Samsung is they lose $1B from this trial. When this nonsense started their phones were absolute garbage. That $1B can be considered marketing money or engineering monies they saved by copying Apple
to get their phones and mindshare to where they are now, which are pretty good these days. The damages are nothing for either company and Samsung would have spent far more over the last couple years trying to get their phones and image to where they are now on their own.

Yeah, but you have to think that the other OEMs who aren't making money hand-over-fist to think seriously about what they might be in for.
Also, Google sitting the back murmuring sweet nothings to Motorola encouraging them on has to be nervously licking their lips thinking about the $10B they spent for those FRAND encumbered patents.
I am glad apple won. Korean company been copying and making tons of money out of it. Look at Samsung s3 designed for human and inspired by nature their English so broken so does that mean before this all their phones and other manufacturer designed their phones for alien?
This the first phone designed by human? So what so special about the phone nothing.
What the heck does inspired by nature means easily breakable?
We heard tons of ppl complaining how easy the screen and body breaks.
What have Samsung innovate?
S voice copied from siri
S-beam? Copy from NFC transfer by giving a name?
Android taken by google?
their bada os is a failure so they can only resort to copying design.
