Apple-Samsung smartphone clash heads to jury

• The
 The mammoth Apple-Samsung patent trial moved to the jury Tuesday, setting the stage for a verdict that could have huge implications for the hot market in smartphones and tablet computers.

US District Judge Lucy Koh began reading instructions to the nine-member jury in San Jose, California, as lawyers for the two tech giants readied closing arguments.

Apple, which accuses the South Korean electronics giant of copying the iPhone and iPad too closely, is seeking damages of up to $2.75 billion and an injunction that could knock some Samsung products off the US market.

Even a delay in sales could endanger Samsung’s position in the US market, where it is currently the top seller of smartphones.

Samsung has countered by arguing that its patents on wireless communication were infringed by Apple, and is demanding up to $422 million from the Silicon Valley manufacturer.
