What’s claimed to be a prototype original iPad has surfaced on eBay. Its most interesting feature? A choice of dock connectors on the portrait and landscape sides.
This is normal for Apple prototypes to show up on eBay or other places and usually the legal department of Apple will quickly stop these auctions. All the more reason
to believe that at one time the ipad actually did have 2 dock connectors which could have had it’s advantages. Its probably safe to say that cost and usability are the main reasons of why they chose to only use one dock connector. Either way the iPad is still a great device to have.
