Google has responded to the news of Apple winning Samsung in court over patent infringement. Google released this statement, stating that while Samsung lost the trial, the ruling won't implicate Android.

"The court of appeals will review both infringement and the validity of the patent claims. Most of these don't relate to the core Android operating system, and several are being re-examined by the US Patent Office. The mobile industry is moving fast and all players — including newcomers — are building upon ideas that have been around for decades. We work with our partners to give consumers innovative and affordable products, and we don't want anything to limit that."

Samsung intends to appeal against the decision of patent infringement and the $1 billion they must pay Apple.
