Just how much would you be willing to pay for a regular iPad? It really depends, ranging from how new and pristine the particular tablet costs. Of course, it would also include the possibility of who was using the iPad before that, and if you were to throw the name of Pope Francis around, then you would end up with a real treasure – as Pope Francis’ iPad was sold for an alleged $30,500 in an auction.
This particular tablet was sold for a whopping $30,500 at a charity auction for a school in Uruguay, and this event happened earlier in the week, at least according to Reuters. The phone bidder remained anonymous, although Castells auction house in Montevideo was said to have handled the auction. Of course, do bear in mind that apart from the person making use of this particular tablet in the past being none other than Pope Francis, this tablet will also sport an inscription located at the back that reads: “His Holiness Francisco. Servizio Internet Vatican, March 2013.”
In addition, there is also a certificate that has been paired with the slate, and this certificate comes with a signature of the Pope’s personal secretary, Fabian Pedacchio Leaniz. It is all for a good cause, I suppose.
