Samsung Electronics Co has been ordered by a US jury to pay $119.6m to Apple Inc., for infringing two Apple patents, far less than Apple had sought and marking a big loss for the iPhone maker in the latest round of their globe-spanning mobile patent litigation, Reuters has reported. During the month-long trial in a San Jose, California, federal court, Apple accused Samsung of violating patents on smartphone features including universal search, while Samsung denied wrongdoing.
