I'm wondering if this decision might not open a window fot Microsoft and Nokia (no pun intended) to replace infringing android products, as well as encourage developers to expand their work on the Windows Mobile platform.

So wouldn't the obvious solution be to license the patents, get it over with?

Yeah, M'softs less interesting platform might get a boost as a safer play now.

Yeah, go ahead and license, and I bet the price just went up significantly for that license. Don't expect a FRAND-ly deal

It appears there were some errors made by the jury. This might get tossed... http://www.groklaw.net/article.php?story=2012082510525390

I doubt the errors were so great as to get the verdict thrown out but I am sure it is more fodder for Samsung's appeal

If you read the content at groklaw, it sounds as though jury instructions were not followed at all. Quote: "The foreman told a court representative that the jurors had reached a decision without needing the instructions."

There is an interesting story by Reuters that speaks of a potential role played by the foreman, retired engineer. http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/08/25/us-apple-samsung-juror-idUSBRE87O09U20120825

I have read design patent that has specified detailed dimension including length, width, height and radius of arc if there is any round corner. I couldn't believe a patent of rectangular box without scale limitation be granted in the first place. This patent lawsuit is indeed an eye opener to me. On the other hands, what happen to iPad mini and iPhone 5 if anyone has been granted a patent of 7 inches tablet and/ or that of a cinematic screen ratio form factor device.

Was Samsung agressive enough to patent the 16:9 aspect ratio on their Galaxy phones, ready to pounce on the Apple iPhone5? I bet not, and yet this is the silliness we're dealing with here. We went shopping for a microwave oven this weekend. Wow, they all pretty much looked the same, some were more rounded looking than others, they had almost all the same features. And they even all came in the same two finish options (black or stainless). There may have been a white one too. How could they possibly get away with this? I have a couple of patents to my name too. But somehow, I have to doubt that any stories I could tell a jury about my experiences would have helped to guide them to a similar outcome. And the recounting of those experiences seems to have been a critical aspect of this outcome, from a couple of articles I read.
