Apple, Inc. and Samsung Electronics have been locked in a showdown over dominance of a $200 billion-plus smartphone and tablet market. But that ended Friday with the ruling of a month-long trial for Apple's patent infringement lawsuit against Samsung.
The jury ruled that Samsung infringed design patents for smartphones and tablets owned by Apple.
The jury awarded $1.05 billion in damages to Apple. That is $1.45 billion short of what Apple demanded when the company originally filed the lawsuit last year.
