iPhone and iPad early prototypes surface

Last week, the Verge posted a series of shots of the early iPad and iPhone designs revealed in court documents.

Now, AllThingsD has presented a gallery of images from the trial showing various prototype designs that helped shape the iPhone.

The site reports: “Among the many filings on Saturday was a document with dozens of sketches and prototypes for both the iPhone and iPad. Some had already been included in earlier filings, but Saturday’s collection was particularly extensive.”

“The filing features a host of sketches, images from computer-aided design programs, and photographs of actual models that Apple fabricated as part of its design process.”

The “Purple” prototype looks very similar to the design of the white versions of the iPhone 4 and 4S and it dates back to August 2005.

As for the iPad, early prototypes of the device featured square or round corners.

Earlier filings revealed Apple had envisioned the handset with a kickstand.
