Apple shares are up about $14 (2%)
following the company’s legal win against Samsung last Friday after it was found to have infringed on mobile device patents owned by the
Apple and hence awarding Apple more than $1 billion in damages.
That move boosted Apple’s stock to a new intraday high around $676 per share. On the other side, the stock of Android OS maker Google dipped about 1.3 percent in morning trading to around $669. Android is now playing stagnant due to the uneasy air created by Apple with its market share and newcomers waiting to see what the iPhone 5 is all about. The iPhone 5 will be another beneficiary of the legal victory too.
