Samsung is know for copying the competition in many cases (there are no 36 methods to manufacture a certain kind of product), but they are subtle enough to create a distinctive product and avoid to fool their customers by making perfect copies of the competitor's product.
As far as I know, there's a big Samsung mark on the box, nothing that comes close to a drawing of a fruit and It's called Galaxy Tab, not somethingPad or iSomething. The packaging of the Galaxy is maybe similar in shape to the iPad's packaging, but how the hell can you package it differently??? Any constructor selling a rectangular shaped device will probably put it in a rectengular box, with the product appearing on the top of the packaging as you open it, and the accessories and manuals below it. That's elementary marketing and from cell phones to digital camera's, every decent manufacturer has used the same layout for about ten years !
The fact that consumers manage to confuse iPads and Galaxy tabs says a lot about how brainwashed the average (or below average) consumers have become with the iPad hype but it doesn't demonstrate that Samsung wanted to fool his customers. Many dumbasses are calling any tablet an iPad or any smartphone an iPhone, but that's hardly the fault of the manufacturer of the device.
