iPad on sale via eBay for $21 million

iPad on sale via eBay for $21 million Pre-orders for the much-hyped Apple iPad just started on Friday but that isn't stopping eBay sellers from trying to make a pretty penny off the tablet before it officially ships on April 3rd.
There are currently 442 iPads up for sale, with a range of prices, most with a heavy premium.

The most ridiculous comes from a "top rated seller" with the moniker egiftscentral_123, who is selling a Wi-Fi/16GB model for $21 million USD, and even then is audacious enough to charge $14.42 for shipping.

Users that will ship internationally seem to be the only ones receiving true bids, as the iPad is set to go on sale in only 10 countries next month.

This has to be a joke, no one in their right mind would pay that much.

Nice journalism, not to mention reading skills. Took all of 5 seconds to see that they are selling a domain name with ipad in it. Still ridiculous for sure? But regardless of accuracy, we all want to get iPad news out the second it hits don't we?

HA, my bad. The 5th 21,000,000 price tag was in fact for the ipad. Apologies are in order. Now I have an iPad to go get :)

Well, there's probably SOME super-rich person somewhere willing to pay whatever for a new gadget w/o thinking. Someone like Nick Cage but who actually hasn't blindly wasted all their money in the past.

Who knows maybe those kids that offered $100,000+ on that Stadium Events will come back for more on this Ipad auction.
