iPad Prototype

Via The Verge:

Apple was working on tablet prototypes “sometime between 2002 and 2004.” What’s more, the documents contained some grainy but revealing photos of a tablet computer prototype known as the “035 mockup or prototype” which Jony Ive dates to that same early-2000’s period.

I always knew the iPad was in a lab somewhere way prior to 2010 when it originally came to market, at least by four years when Steve Jobs more or less admitted as such at an All Things D conference.

But to see the iPad in a white MacBook style another eight years prior to its actual reveal is impressive.
