Apple designer Christopher Stringer took to the stand, in the trial of Apple versus Samsung, bringing with him a host of prototype designs for iPhones and iPads. Some were physical prototype handsets – all in aid of proving Apple got there first.
In total there were 32 iPhone and six iPad designs which just goes to show how the rumour mill manages to churns out so many different possibilities. Some, like prototype 25 above may even look better than the final release. Rather interestingly it looks more akin to Sony phone designs, with the flat metallic back and side button grouping, than Samsung handsets. The iPad design below even sports a larger rounded edge, presumably for easy holding.
The hearing also revealed that Apple literally designs its handsets around the kitchen table. Follow The Verge link below for the full photo gallery and don't miss our iPhone 5 photo story on what may be the next stage in Apple handset evolution.
