Apple iPad used by Pope Francis is auctioned off for $30,000
Aemilius at first turned the iPad over to a Francisco de Paysandu high school. Attempts to auction it off through big name auction houses like Sotheby and Christie’s failed, and it was turned over to a local house in Uruguay named Castells. The winning bidder was unidentified, having entered the winning bid via telephone.
The iPad has an engraving on back that reads, "His Holiness Francisco. Servizio Internet Vatican, March 2013." Besides the tablet, the winner also received a Logitech keyboard and a certificate signed by Pope Francis' personal secretary, Fabian Pedacchio Leaniz. For the record, the Pope is a fan of the internet and has called it "a gift from God."
Thanks for the tip!
