Got a spare $10,000? Too late. The rare prototype iPad that featured two 30-pin dock connectors has sold for an astonishing $10,200, $200 above the original asking price.




The unit sported dock connects on the bottom and left side of the iPad, and was a fully functional unit except for a faulty digitizer, which renders the touchscreen inoperative. The prototype did still include Apple's "Switchboard" testing software included.




Seven bidders were at the hammer for the device, with 23 bids issued for the device. The unidentified buyer placed the winning bit with just two minutes to spare. What makes the device so rare is that it's just so scarce, as well as no one outside of Apple owns a dual dock-capable iPad.




The $10,200 prototype iPad lacks any trademark and regulatory markings that are found on a retail iPad, but it does sport a prototype ID number as well as part numbers and copyrights from prior to the official iPad launch. Both dock ports are reportedly fully functional.
