re: Apple Verdict Could Boost Microsoft, RIM Smartphones
Before coming up with a bunch of unlikely scenarios wait until Samsung appeals the verdict. In the end Samsung needs to make some changes to the products or write on it in big bold letters "This is not an Apple product". As far as monetary damages go, there is no case left to ban the 10.1 tablet and there will be some negotiating done to compensate for the loss of sales.
My speculation is that once all is set and done and the bogus patents are upheld Samsung will pay half a billion to Apple and that's the end of it. Apple was never able to show any form of evidence that consumers bought Samsung, because they thought it was an Apple product. I find it utterly disturbing that Apple even thinks consumers are that gosh darn stupid. This case is not over for a long time.

We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
