Steve Ballmer-signed Microsoft Surface being auctioned for charity


These days it is not uncommon to see developers auctioning off exclusive dev units they received for free, but the action of a Steve Ballmer-signed Microsoft Surface is fortunately nothing like that.

Emotion Touch is auctioning off an exclusive Steve Ballmer signed Microsoft Surface with all proceeds going to supporting a Christmas Party at the cancer ward Charité, Campus Virchow-Klinikum, Berlin, under the auspices of the Kinderleben Association for the Promotion of the Department of Children’s Cancer Association.

The 32 GB Surface tablet was signed by Steve Ballmer at a Berlin developer event 3 weeks ago, and comes with free shipping and the original accessories, and also with a VAT invoice if companies want to bid. At the time of writing the auction is standing at 610 Euro with 9 bids and is closing on the 5th December.

See the auction at eBay here and support a good cause while also scoring your very own Surface tablet.

Thanks Kai for the tip.
