MONTEVIDEO: An iPad tablet computer that belonged to Pope Francis went under the hammer for $30,500 on Tuesday, auctioneers in Uruguay said.

Montevideo-based auction house Castells said the winning bid was placed by telephone.
Local media threw a spotlight on the iPad last year.

The pope gave it—complete with its His Holiness Francis label and a Vatican certificate of authenticity—to an Uruguayan priest as a gift.

It ended up being donated to a local school by the priest, before being auctioned off to raise money.
