An eBay listing unearthed by Mac Rumors confirms the ancient rumor that Apple at one point considered an iPad with two dock connectors.
The iPad prototype on sale looks authentic, and is unique in several aspects. It has two full functional dock connectors, one on the bottom side and one on the left side of the device. Furthermore, it sports a special Apple diagnostic software suite called the SwitchBoard.
Unfortunately for wannabe buyers, the device shows quite a bit wear and tear, and the touch screen is not working — quite a big issue on a tablet.
Still, it could be an interesting buy for a collector or a developer/engineer interested in Apple’s secrets.
The starting price is a whopping $4,800, and the “buy it now” price is $10,000. You could buy 20 new iPads for the price, but you’re not buying this one for its 16 GB of memory anyway, are you?
