Electronic auction eBay replenished very interesting lot. Someone under the name Theappleguru sells an engineering prototype of the first iPad, which is technically completely identical to the serial model. The device with a metal case and a 9.7-inch screen with a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels is equipped with a 16 GB storage device.
The prototype differs from the serial sample operating system. Instead of iOS, SwitchBoard is installed on it, which is used to test device components.
Theapplegur himself writes that he never saw such prototypes on sale. Well, maybe that $ 5,000 for such a rare thing is not that expensive.
