In an emailed statement, Samsung said that it was disappointed in the verdict and is reviewing it. Among the options available to the Korean based tech giant is an appeal. Apple has yet to issue a statement about the court's decision.
Unlike the courtroom action in Tokyo, the patent trial that starts at the end of this month in the U.S. between Apple and Samsung is expected to generate a large amount of media attention. The first epic patent trial between the two rivals filled every seat in the courtroom as members of the media and those interested in the proceedings, waited on long lines for a coveted courtroom seat.
