Video: Pope Uses iPad

The Vatican just upgraded Pope’s iPod with an iPad! At the Apostolic Palace on Tuesday afternoon:

“With a simple tap and that tweet, Pope Benedict XVI launched the beginning of a new adventure for the Vatican’s media services. At the Apostolic Palace on Tuesday afternoon, Pope Benedict used a tablet to launch the new web portal featuring the latest news of the Vatican’s media services.”

ObamaPacman.com found the tweet sent by the Pope @news_va_en, and that new Vatican site is news.va (not Rome Reports, which did not reference either of these).
