Color photos of Apple's 035 iPad mockup emerge

New color photos of Apple's 035 tablet mockup have emerged

Following our report yesterday detailing the earliest known photos of an iPad prototype, Buzzfeed was able to find color photos of the infamous 035 tablet mockup measured against the iPad 2. The differences between the 8+ year old mockup and the current iteration of the iPad couldn't be any more stark.

The size difference is quite apparent, with the earlier tablet mockup looking much more like the backside of a laptop than a standalone tablet.

This is almonst an inch thick.
