Apple "This early prototype has a number of ports that we're used to seeing more commonly on computers than on mobile devices, including USB ports, an Ethernet port, and even a serial port. Apple never intended for all of these to make it into the final product, of course - our source said that because this was a development prototype, ports like Ethernet and serial were included simply to make working on the device easier." Fascinatingly awesome.

It would be even more interesting to see software running on it, some kind of GUI and get a sense in what direction Apple was thinking until it ended up with what we got.
