First we caught a glimpse of the Samsung Jasper, a mid-range device slated for Big Red. Then Droid Life was leaked a photo of the price card for the Samsung Galaxy Stellar. Now we know they're one and the same,courtesy of a full product listing that has cropped up on Best Buy.

Though the Stellar is listed as available for store pickup beginning today, it's actually unavailable in stores at this point.

True to a rumor we saw earlier this month about a possible addition to Samsung's Galaxy Player line, the Korean manufacturer has just unveiled – via Samsung Tomorrow – the ginormous Galaxy Player 5.8.

As the name would imply, the Galaxy Player 5.8 features a huge, large, ample, plentiful 5.8" LCD display that buyers can only hope will fit in their pocket. The downside here is that the display carries a resolution of just 960x540.

The reading of Friday's verdict was no doubt an intense moment for just about everyone interested in the mobile tech world. Apple swept up decisions for $1.049 Billion in damages, Samsung was denied its claims against Apple across the board by the nine-person California jury, and both sides immediately released impassioned responses to the decision, calling on the feelings of spectators and case-long mantras that kept onlookers from both sides in rapt attention.

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Is Your Primary Android Device Rooted?

In the (annoyingly) highly-publicized case between Apple and Samsung, it took the jury just a few short days to come to the conclusion that Samsung had infringed on many of Apple's patents. The trial is certainly far from over (and there are doubts about how much attention the jury paid to detail, given that they answered 700 questions in 3 days).

Since the debut of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean back at I/O, everyone has been clamoring for CyanogenMod 10. With the addition of each new device to the list of those with official nightly support, hopeful users of flagship handsets like the HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy SIII wondered when their day would come. While most variants of the SIII have already received nightlies, the US Cellular variant (d2usc) joined that list last night, along with a few other devices.

The biggest story in the tech world this weekend is undoubtedly the Apple vs. Samsung trial. While it may be a sore spot for Android fans around the globe, the evidence has been weighed and measured, and the jury has spoken.

To find out how things went during deliberations, both Reuters and CNET scored interviews with a couple of jurors. Between the two interviews, it's clear that some of the jurors had a difference of opinion, and some debates were even described as "heated."

Fortunately, some of the jurors had at least a somewhat technical background and were able to offer some insight into the more complicated aspects of the trial.

We hear a lot of rumors around here, and it's not always easy to decide which ones to cover. Some we cover just because of how ridiculous they are, but usually we stick to ones we think hold merit. This one, though... well, I just can't decide which category it falls into, but it might be a little of both.

A tipster has told GSMArena that Samsung will announce a Galaxy S III-esque point-and-shoot alongside the Note 2 at IFA next week.  Think a Galaxy S III that's just under twice as thick (which, let's be honest, would still be pretty thin for a camera) and packs "a 16MP sensor and 10x zoom, with a pop-out Xenon flash and a curved right side aimed at improving its ergonomics." The chuckle-inducingly bad name will apparently be Samsung Galaxy Camera.

There's no question – today's verdict dealt Samsung a heavy blow. The massive $1.04 billion sum Samsung will now be responsible for paying Apple in damages aside, the trial will undoubtedly have an effect on the rest of the industry.

Being all too aware of this fact, Samsung has already issued an official response to the verdict, stating that the verdict is not a win for Apple, but a loss for consumers and a blow to innovation.

If you were following our meta-live coverage, you'll know that the outcome of Apple v. Samsung was basically really, really bad for Samsung. To the tune of slightly over a billion dollars. Yikes. Samsung did escape any successful allegations of infringement through its tablets, but on the smartphone front, they really did get destroyed.

Samsung was found to infringe on two major iPhone design patents on almost every device Apple accused, including the D'677 patent, which covers the front fascia of the iPhone, pictured below.

If you're anything like us, you've been closely eyeing the Apple v. Samsung verdict as it was just read (a bit sooner than expected). While Apple won just under half its requested sum in damages, and swept up a handful of patent infringement victories, Samsung had some patent-related bones to pick with Cupertino.

In a broad motion, the jury found Apple not to be infringing on any of Samsung's purported patents, awarding Sammy a grand total of $0.00 in damages to be paid by Apple.
