Prototype iPad 1 With Two Dock Connectors For Sale on eBay

A prototype first generation iPad with dual dock connectors has surfaced for sale on eBay.

This is one of a VERY small amount of Apple prototype devices and you rarely see these on ebay. This iPad has 16GBs of capacity, and is incredibly unique. For starters, It has 2 dock connectors. Apple prototyped these iPads to have this connector late in the process and at the last minute decided to remove them. There are patent drawings and leaked casings that show the indents for both dock connector holes, but this unit has both dock connectors, and both are full functional for charging this iPad and connecting it to your computer.

The device is said to be running Apple's software testing suite called "SwitchBoard" which is used to test the devices functionality. The touch screen is not fully functional which may be due to a missing clip that holds the ribbon down on the digitizer. "When I applied pressure to the connector that was missing the clip, the iPad's digitizer responded sporadically to touches."

The starting bid for the iPad is $4,800 and the auction ends in less than 13 hours.

Guess the SkankPhone app went the same way this prototype went :) That would have been a cool app anyway.

Apple will surely confiscate it...Will it be Gizmodo style and have the police break down the doors or Cava22 where they impersonate an officer of the law.
