iOnApple (NetworkWorld) has unearthed some photos of what may be the earliest iPad prototype ever pictured.

In a recently released deposition of Apple Senior VP of Industrial Design Jonathan Ive, the designer is questioned about the '035 mockup or prototype.'

After being shown photos of the mockup, Ive says, "My recollection of first seeing it is very hazy, but it was, I'm guessing, sometime between 2002 and 2004, some but it was I remember seeing this and perhaps models similar to this when we were first exploring tablet designs that ultimately became the iPad."

iOnApple searched through older filings in the Samsung/Apple case and found the 035 mockup in question.

Yes, that was way back in 2004, before they'd invented color photographs!
