Russian oil giant Gazprom is searching for a tablet worth up to 119.7 million rubles (£2.4m) for its chief executive.

The computer device should be based on Apple’s operating system and match the way Alexey Miller’s desktop computer works, according to a tender on the firm’s Gazprom Inform website which appears to have now been removed.

The tablet must start in a maximum of five seconds and be able to run 3G, Wi-Fi and GPRS, as well as let Mr Miller check Gazprom’s daily activity from gas production to exports and its power plants, according to reports.

The huge price tag won’t earn it the title of most expensive tablet in the world as this most likely goes to the gold, diamond and Tyrannosaurus Rex fossil encrusted iPad 2 allegedly created by an Australian in 2011, which was valued at A$7million or around £4.6million.
