So Delilah (Apple) has won the patent battle with Samson (Samsung) .. but lets wait for the appeals.

The big winner is probably Microsoft as the Win Phone 7 - Metro (Win 8) UI is radically different to Apple's.

Microsoft were smart to develop a radically different yet funky UI, which has taken a while for us to get our heads around.

We may now see that Nokia has backed a winner and more OEMs may now switch to Windows Phone.

Google may be the big looser in all of this.

I think though that Samson has plenty of strength (hair) left in this battle.

Can I patent a rounded triangle, rounded rhombus, rounded pentagon, rounded hexagon, rounded polygon or indeed a rounded circle?!!!
