Pictures Of The First Prototype iPad Surface From Jony Ive Deposition

New (well technically old), pictures have surfaced from the deposition of Jony Ive showing a much thicker, plastic, and buttonless iPad prototype or mockup. The pictures are quite interesting, though I’m glad this was just a prototype…

NetworkWorld pulled the deposition which included statements and some of the pictures below. Be sure to check out their site for the full deposition. Also, check out the gallery below.

Here’s Ive’s talking about the prototype:

During the course of the deposition, Ive at one point is shown photos of a three dimensional mockup of a tablet that Apple produced as part of the discovery process. It’s referred to as the 035 mockup or prototype.

Ive is then asked if he’d seen the mockup before, and if so, when.

He responds that he has seen the 035 mockup before and adds:

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.

I don’t know about you, but I think this thing is a clunker. It’s pretty interesting to know that Apple has been dabbling with tablets since as early as 2002 though. Seeing these, you know Apple has come a LONG way when compared to the new iPad. The body honestly looks like an over-sized classic iPod.

What do you think of these old school iPad prototypes?

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any
    problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but
    it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement.
    Do you know any techniques to help stop content from being stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.
