FORTUNE -- Apple wanted $380 million. Samsung said it owed no more than $52 million. On Thursday, after a six day trial and a couple days of deliberation, a jury awarded Apple (AAPL) $290 million -- about 75% of what it asked for.
So ends the partial retrial of Apple v. Samsung, the patent infringement trial that resulted in August 2012 with a record $1.05 billion judgment against Samsung.
That figure has since been through several iterations. In March, the judge in the case vacated damages on 14 products -- representing $450 million of the total award -- because of errors made in the jury form. She ordered a new trial on that portion of the $1.05 billion.
In April, when Apple pointed out that the judge had also made an error, she backtracked a bit. The new trial -- the one that just wrapped up -- would determine damages on 13 products, representing $400 million of the original award.
According to AllThingsD's Ina Fried -- who cited courtroom sources -- Samsung now owes Apple a total of $929.83 million. That jibes with an estimate FOSS Patents' Florian Mueller made in an FAQ filed at the start of the retrial.
A second patent trial, covering some of the products Samsung has introduced in the two and a half years since Apple filed its original suit -- including the Galaxy S3 (but not the S4) -- is scheduled to begin in March 2014.
Wonder what the trial that starts today is all about? Florian Mueller has the answers.
FORTUNE -- Nobody covers high-tech patent litigation -- especially lawsuits involving Apple's (AAPL) patents -- more closely than FOSS Patents' Florian Mueller.
So it's probably appropriate that Mueller provide the definitive Q&A for the damages retrial that starts Tuesday in San Jose.

Q: Is this a patent trial?
A: Sort of. MORE
An Apple victory could result in the second largest patent infringement award in history.
FORTUNE -- If you thought that the one billion dollars a jury awarded Apple (AAPL) last year had been cut nearly in half, you may be forgiven. That's how most of the business press reported it.
What actually happened is that Judge Lucy Koh, who presided over the big Apple v. Samsung patent infringement trial last August, "vacated" $400 million MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Nov 8, 2013 8:34 AM ET
A judge can't be bothered to add Samsung's Galaxy S4 to the trial he scheduled for 2014.
FORTUNE -- U.S. Magistrate Judge Paul S. Grewal, who has been handling some of the case load created by the multiple patent infringement suits filed in California by Apple (AAPL) and Samsung, has a judicial metabolism better fit for the 19th century than 21st.
He's the judge who was assigned the task last year of scheduling Apple's MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 27, 2013 1:07 PM ET
New patents support speculation that Apple has saved mobile payments for the fall.
FORTUNE -- "Mobile payments remains a future opportunity," wrote Morgan Stanley's Katy Huberty in her note to clients about Monday's WWDC keynote.
"Apple's 575 million active accounts, which is tracking ahead of our 600 million year-end 2013 estimate, is the largest credit-card linked account base, making it an obvious payments platform over time. Apple often saves new feature/service introductions MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 11, 2013 8:04 AM ET
Note to editor: Not all patents are the same.
FORTUNE -- Under the headline Samsung-Apple Patent Fight: Is It Worth It?, Wednesday's Wall Street Journal takes a long look at three years of smartphone litigation and concludes that the answer is no.
"A string of rulings in big cases has left litigants with little to show for all the trouble," writes the Journal's Ashby Jones in the "nut" paragraph that states the MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - May 8, 2013 7:45 AM ET
How could the press get the effect of a judge's high-profile ruling so wrong?
FORTUNE -- When Judge Lucy Koh last month ordered a new trial to determine the proper damage award for 14 of the 28 Samsung devices found by a jury last summer to have infringed Apple (AAPL) patents, nearly every reporter covering story followed Reuters' lead:
"Apple had a major setback in its ongoing mobile patents battle with Samsung Electronics MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Apr 1, 2013 6:35 AM ET
To protect the iPhone's fragile screen when falling, it would shift its center of balance
FORTUNE -- We don't usually write about Apple's (AAPL) patents because the company files so many and so few ever see the light of day.
But for Patent Application No. 20130073095, published Thursday and spotted by AppleInsider's Mikey Campbell, we'll make an exception.
It describes a sensor-and-microprocessor system that can detect when an iPhone or iPad is falling and MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Mar 21, 2013 7:57 AM ET
For Samsung, even March 2014 is too early for Apple's case against the Galaxy S3
FORTUNE -- When we reported last September that that Apple (AAPL) had added Samsung's flagship Galaxy S3 to a patent infringement suit scheduled to go on trial in March 2014, some readers thought the trial date was typo.
After all, Apple had filed this second suit -- not be confused with the one that ended in August MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Mar 8, 2013 8:12 AM ET
Could this be the iWatch we've been hearing so much about?
FORTUNE -- Early Thursday morning, AppleInsider's Mikey Campbell came across a patent filed by Apple (AAPL) in August 2011 that sounds a lot like the touchscreen iWatch Apple is rumored to be building using Corning's (GLW) flexible Willow glass. It also looks a lot like the slap bracelets my kids used to wear when they were in grade school.Philip Elmer-DeWitt - Feb 21, 2013 7:13 AM ET
