Rare Invention scrapped by Steve Jobs set to be auctioned
An auction house in Los Angeles, USA, will offer, next month, a device that has not been put on the market, designed by the late founder of Apple, Steve Jobs.

The VideoPad 2 prototype, invented in the 1990s and representing a very early conception of the iPad, will be auctioned off in the History of Science and Technology auction by international auction house Bonhams, according to The Verge. The videopad is fetching $12,000 at auction.

VideoPad was developed between 1993 and 1995, and although it was designed at the time to be ahead of its time, its production with the Newton OS was canceled after Steve Jobs returned to the company in 1997, after the late inventor realized that the technology was not at the required level.

Memorabilia from the late Steve Jobs will also be displayed in the Bonhams auction, including a handwritten letter to his childhood friend, estimated at $200,000-300,000.
