iPhone auctioned for $100,000

Anonymous bidder helps 'Keep a Child Alive' charity.


Regardless of what P.T. Barnum said, we can't legitimately call the buyer of this $100,000 iPhone a sucker because it was all for charity. An anonymous bidder won the phone (pictured here), the first sold at Apple's Soho store to Spike Lee, on eBay as part of the "Keep a Child Alive" auction to raise money for children suffering from AIDS in Africa.

It's not all blinged out (blung out?) like some others we've seen, but that's actually a good thing. And BornRich does say it comes with other fringes, including "two Jawbone headsets, a couple of U.S. flights, a specially recorded celebrity voicemail message." Even with those perks, the margin is still slightly better than the average $54.43 profit calculated for most of the iPhones sold on eBay.
