Either it may be due to their less competitiveness or may be due to their lack in technological specs, certain gadget mimics can’t make it to the market shelves! Here we present you with some interesting though remarkably unique iPhone prototypes that were never debuted anyways. ‘Apple’ employee, not disclosed here, spied upon some earlier variants of iPhone. Apple could have published these pictures under the heading -‘iPhone in the making’. This prototype was christened the ‘Video Pad’; it flaunted a remarkable interface (like the Palm Pilot) with an integrated speaker ergonomically placed just below the wide LCD screen.
Apple Figaro is another prototype that may have got the laurels of being called the world’s first ever UMPC. It’s a lethal machine combining the aspects of a laptop and a PDA. A heck of a lot of tech freaks have also compared it to the good old HTC Shift. No matter what their fate is, they all seem to be a collector’s pride! Hey Apple, when is the auction?
