eBay is celebrating 100 million downloads of its mobile apps with some weird statistics that prove people will spend a lot of money on vehicles via their phones. The most expensive item ever listed using a mobile device in Australia? A $45,700 caravan. The most expensive purchase? An $87,500 vintage US muscle car.

The top two items listed on eBay.com.au using a mobile device were an ensuite van which sold for $45,700 in January this year, followed by a 10 ounce gold bullion bar sold for $14,5000 in late August. The priciest purchase through a mobile was a $US87,500 Chevrolet Bel Air 150/210 which sold in February, with second place taken by a Hermes Birkin Leather Handbag which went for $US18,750 in August.
Leaving aside whether you'd spend $18,750 on a handbag like the one pictured (I wouldn't, but I suspect the team at FabSugar might think differently), I'm curious: do you think differently when it comes to buying on your mobile phone, or is it all one and the same?
