 2007 first generation iPhone sold at auction for a crazy price

The first-generation iPhone, in its original factory packaging, sold at auction Sunday for $63,356.40. That's 100 times the original price in 2007 – approximately $599. Claims for the historic iPhone started coming in earlier this month, with one claiming $2,500, according to CBS.

Happy seller — Karen Green, who received a phone in 2007 as a gift from her friends on her new job day. But at that time she already had a new phone, and she did not want to change it, but simply left the gift at home for many years. She decided sell it to support your new business — tattoo studio in New Jersey.

“If I could leave my phone for another 10 years, I probably would. The only reason I'm selling this phone is because I need to support my business”, — Karen said.

The iPhone was purchased by an unnamed private buyer.

At the time it was released, the first iPhone included an innovative touch screen, web browser, and 2 megapixel camera. When the phone first went on sale on June 29, 2007, there were two models, one that retailed for $499 and had 4GB, and the other with a larger storage capacity of 8GB that retailed for $599.
