    That's a lot of benjamins to win in a lawsuit. Samsung infringed on design and software patents.

    "The jury in the landmark Apple-Samsung trial ruled mostly in favor of Apple, including awarding Apple $1,051,855,000 in damages. Samsung, on the other hand, was granted a total of $0 in damages.

    Here’s a quick rundown of how the jury came down on both of the companies. Remember, there are plenty of devices at play here — on Samsung’s side alone, there’s the Captivate, Continuum, Droid Charge, Epic 4G, Fascinate, Galaxy Ace, Galaxy Prevail, Galaxy S, Infuse 4G, Mesmerize, Vibrant, plus every carrier’s version of the Galaxy S II.

    The jury found no infringement by Apple on any of Samsung’s utility patents.
    The jury found that Samsung infringed on patents for ’381 “bounce back” scrolling functionality on all devices.
    On the ’915 patent, relating to one finger to scroll, two to pinch and zoom navigation, all but three Samsung devices (Ace, Intercept and Replenish) infringed.
    For Apple’s ’163 patent (tap to zoom) all Samsung devices except Captivate, Indulge, Intercept, Nexus S 4G, Transform and Vibrant infringed."
