Full Color Photographs of an Early iPad Prototype

iPad Prototype

First revealed by NetworkWorld earlier today, BuzzFeed’s Matt Buchanan has just unearthed full-color images showing the early 2002-2004 iPad prototype positioned adjacent to a contemporary iPad 2.

Aside from the confirmation of the age of the iPad concept and general aesthetic, it’s fascinating to witness just how far technology has progressed over the past decade. Moving from a heavily weighted, large-screened device to the contemporary iPad is nothing short of brilliant.
