Samsung violated Apple patents; iPad Mini in October; Windows Phones for AT&T and more!Sydney Myers - Teen Lifestyle Editor
As they say, "the jury is in". The panel found that Samsung violated Apple's patents, that the parent company forced its US counterparts to do so, and that this was done willfully and knowingly. The jury ruled that Samsung must pay Apple a little over $1 billion in damages, about half of the over $2 billion that Apple wanted. The sweeping victory wasn't total, as Samsung was found to not violate any of Apple's patents in regards to the iPad and Galaxy Tab. Still, it was basically complete domination for Apple. We'll have to see how this plays out in the Court of Appeals. In other news, Apple may be holding an event in October where they will announce the iPad Mini, keeping a September event specially for the iPhone. We also have some new details on three Nokia Windows Phones so watch the show to hear about all of that.
