Prototype iPad with Dual Dock Connectors?

Hello folks, did you see the auction listing with the iPad that has dual dock connectors on eBay? The subject was discussed in depth on the MacRumors site Monday. They mentioned that we here at Mission Repair had discovered a backplate back in 2010 and we had been talking about this issue for some time – you can read my original blog about the dual-dock connector iPad backplate here from 2010 to see what I was talking about! Here’s a picture of our backplate:

And here’s a picture of the iPad that ended up on eBay, see the similarity?:

I just went to the eBay listing and the iPad sold on May 28th – for a whopping $10,200. At least it included free Ground shipping 😉

So it got me thinking. . .we here at Mission Repair need to start working on a prototype iPad with dual dock connectors, right? With sales on these units at $10K/piece, there’s certainly a market out there for some diehard iPad landscape docking fans. Listen, when we develop a landscape docking upgrade, we won’t charge you $10K – it will be half price 😉

I know it’s a one of a kind Apple prototype but thanks to MacRumors for the repost of our original story.

Take care, Ryan
