iPad prototype spotted on eBay

By  |  2 Comments

If you want to get in on the big iPad money, now is the time to strike. At least I’m guessing that’s what eBayer Harry.Balsac thought when he listed his “RARE IPAD PROTOTYPE – WIFI 3G GPS!!1!11!!”

Your bidding on a RARE production unit early prototype of the new Apple iPad. This is an ealrier model that has even more features than the actual final ipad. Same touchscreen wifi 3g and gps + CAMERA that was cut from final. Uses old SIM card instead of new microsim but offers VOICE calling not just data. Way better than iPad.

This protpype is much smaller than normal ipad and can be easly held in one hand. screen is about 3.5 inch digonal. Multiple speakkers for audio. Two around dock conection. Lock button on top. Volume buttons on side. Screenlock switch is still mute not lock. Plastic backing not aluminum. Very convinient to carry. Compatable with all ipad/ipod/iphone accesories. Must-have collectable and fully functining tablet computer.

Huh? Oh, you’re still reading? I would have stormed off angrily or left a nasty comment by this point, like “Sumocat, you am teh suck.” Or to put it another way — BAZINGA! April Fools, fools!

      How dare you, sir! The Balzac name, Americanized as Balsac, is revered throughout Europe and North America. Balzac, Alberta was named for famed French author Honoré de Balzac. Yes, Honoré de Balzac. (And yes, I did choose that name specifically for this purpose. Double Bazinga!)
