The verdict to have limited effect on Android, says analyst, Samsung execs head to emergency meeting calling it "the worst case scenario"
One of the most prominent mobile industry analysts - Gene Munster from Piper Jaffray - sent a research note to customers that the impact on the industry overall and Android in particular, will actually be more limited than what talking heads are deliberating since Friday.

He thinks that a company like Samsung has the means to react accordingly, and work around Apple's software patents it was found to be infringing on in the US:


In a sign that he might be right, and Samsung is prepping a response to offset the PR and monetary damages for itself and Android as a whole, its president has gathered the troops in an emergency meeting with attorneys and PR specialists on Sunday. The Korea Times reports that a senior exec has called the verdict "the absolutely worst case scenario for us", which requires the highest level of attention, heading into that meeting. 

For now, Samsung is to file a Rule 50(b) motion that will put the Silicon Valley jury deliberations and decision at doubt, asking the judge for "various relief on the basis that no reasonable jury could find what it did find on the evidence presented."
