Final total reached in Apple/Samsung dispute

Jury arrives at $290 million figure, adding to the $640 million original award

It seems that the long, drawn-out dispute between Apple and Samsung has finally come to a conclusion that is likely to please the iPhone maker. In a retrial, a federal jury awarded an additional $290 million to Apple, based on Samsung’s infringement on five Apple patents in 13 different devices.

The award is added to the $640 million that Samsung was required to pay as the result of the original trial. This brings the total damages to $930 million, which is fairly close to the $1.05 billion Apple was seeking in the suit.
