The recent win for Apple means reduced competition from Samsung and Google, making room for Nokia and Microsoft in smartphone sales

Apple isn't the only winner in its recent victory against Samsung -- partners Nokia and Microsoft could benefit as well with the eliminated competition. 
 
Last week, Samsung took a hard hit from a U.S. jury, which determined that the electronics giant stole important features from the iPhone and iPad for its own line of devices. Samsung was ordered to pay Apple $1.05 billion in damages and is facing upcoming product bans. 
 
This is not only bad news for Samsung, but Google as well since its Android operating system is mainly ran on Samsung's mobile hardware. Android is currently the leader of the OS', reaching 65 percent of the smartphone market. But with Samsung product bans likely on the way, Google could really feel the effect of the jury's decision. 
 
It's obvious that Apple truly benefits here, but Nokia and Microsoft can also pop open a bottle of champagne and celebrate this ruling. Samsung's loss means reduced competition in the smartphone realm, where hardware maker Nokia and Windows software creator Microsoft can offer up their collaborative efforts for increased market share in the U.S. 
 
Nokia already saw a boost with a 10.2 percent jump in shares this morning. Microsoft experienced a smaller increase of 1.6 percent. 

Nokia is the largest maker of Windows Phones, and will feature Windows Phone 8 devices as early as next week.
