The iPad is universally known as one of the most coveted consumer electronics devices on the market. But have you heard of the IPAD? That would be Intel's botched attempt at building a tablet -- which nearly came out roughly a decade before Apple unveiled its first iPad. The device, which was dubbed Intel Pad, or IPAD for short, could browse the Internet, play music and videos, and even act as a digital picture frame. Unfortunately, the operative word is nearly, as the IPAD was scrapped before consumers could get their hands on it.
