It's IDENTICAL. But it looked nothing like it does now before the iPhone. Not only the way they package the phone, but the slate as well! It couldn't be any more blatant.
There's a lot of phones, before and after the iPhone, with that exact packaging.

Edit: and a lot of other electronics/completely unrelated objects.

Edit2: I mean really, it's essentially packaging for a nice watch.

With that exact packaging? Pictures please.

Either way, prior to the iPhone Samsung's packaging wasn't anything like it is now and after the iPhone it's near identical.

All right, so there have been similar designs in the past. However, Apple's packaging is a bit different and they used that packaging when they first started shipping the iPhone. Samsung's packaging on the other hand is almost identical to what Apple is using and they never used packaging like this until after the introduction of the iPhone.

You might think Apple shouldn't be allowed to sue for something like this, however you can't deny that Samsung has copied Apple.

So, does any sort of fact matter too you, or are you ignoring that the iPhone was released before that?

Nook color, kindle, iconia, sony's tablet, xoom 2.

None of those would infringe.

You've stayed fancy throughout the conversation here and I admire that. Hellonwheelz has been rather butt-hurt over my responses regardless of how strong/reasonable/easily debatable they have been.

How much more differentiation is needed other than an obnoxiously huge SAMSUNG emblem on the front though? What exactly is the set legal standard requirement to give consumers enough information to distinguish one product from another similar product in the same department? I mean, I'm sure pretty much all of us here can agree that nearly all current TVs "look" the same, with the obvious difference being the company's logo on the bezel, and we're not seeing many if any lawsuits between TV manufacturers, are we? This is Apple, and it's rather obvious that they're only striving to cut the biggest competition out. (I'd say the Galaxy is surely the best iPad competitor right now) A tablet is by default a pretty generic shape. What should Samsung be expected to do? Build a tablet in the shape of on octagon to look different than an iPad? It already is narrower by a large enough margin to tell the difference.

Ok, so there is a white box variant after all. Now I definitely do agree that the Samsung box is nearly identical, but it still does clearly indicate "SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB," which should be the only concern. I can think of hundreds of brands that all use plain cardboard boxes with only their company logos on it and whatnot. I wonder if Samsung handles Apple's packaging?

I love iPhone 4S packaging. Just throwing that out there lol.

But honestly. It's stupid how they're arguing bout that.
