SAN JOSE, CA- Samsung says it will appeal the verdicts that as of now, have it on the hook to Apple for close to a billion dollars.

A Silicon Valley, California jury yesterday added $290 million more to the damages Samsung already owes Apple for copying key iPhone and iPad features. That brings the total assessed against the South Korean company to $930 million.

The latest verdict covers 13 older Samsung devices that a previous jury found were among 26 Samsung products that infringed Apple patents. A previous jury awarded Apple $1.05 billion. But U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh reduced the damages to $640 million after ruling that jury miscalculated the amount owed on 13 devices - and ordered a new trial on damages related to the other products.
