The Apple Roundup: Post-verdict, Samsung wants to keep Apple as partner

With so many people writing about Apple(s AAPL), finding the best stories and reports isn’t easy.┬áHere’s our daily pick of stories about the company from around the Web that you shouldn’t miss:

  • Despite Apple’s victory over the smartphone and tablet side of Samsung’s house, the South Korean company still has no intention of losing Apple’s extremely lucrative mobile processors business, Reuters reports.
  • According to CNET, the Apple-Samsung jury knew Samsung was guilty after just one day of deliberation, but took 21 hours total to go over the evidence presented to them before announcing a verdict.
  • Jean-Louis Gasee takes on the idea of the “Apple tax,” and the unfair double standard that’s been applied to Apple’s use of patents compared to competitors like Nokia(s NOK).
  • The verdict was almost entirely in Apple’s favor, except for the ruling on the Galaxy Tab, which the jury said did not infringe Apple’s patents. That’s somewhat strange because it was one of the two devices Apple got a sales ban on pre-trial. Fortune looks at what this inconsistency could mean.
  • Does Friday’s outcome mean innovation in mobile is dead? ZDNet says no, and points to the innovation that flowered after Apple and Microsoft’s(s MSFT) IP battle 25 years ago.
