I have both. In real life, they don't look very much alike. The Samsung one has a nice flange to grab hold of. The Apple one has that grey inner area. There's no way to mistake one for the other.

Apple doesn't provide a charger with the iPod touch, for instance. Just a USB cable.
And golly, I sure wish Apple used a mini-USB like the rest of the planet, so you could use anybody's charger while you're out and around. Or maybe be really cool and come up with a port that takes both theirs and mini-USB.
If anything will hurt their "cheaper iPhone" chances in emerging countries, it'll be requiring Apple cables that might be hard to keep or find.
