Pretoria - The website browser history on an iPad3 found in Oscar Pistorius's bedroom was revealed in his murder trial in the North Gauteng High Court on Wednesday.

Television screens in court showed the history included "free mobile porn" and used car websites.

During a short adjournment, media seated in the main court took pictures of the screen.

According to the time next to the history, Pistorius searched the porn website at 18:30 on 13 February 2013.

After that, the iPad was used to browse auto trader, used car websites and to search for cars, including the Ford Ranger and Aston Martin Rapide R.

Cellphone expert Colonel Mike Sale testified that according to data on the iPad 3 and an iPad 2 found on the scene the histories had the same type of content.

He said the web history before 13 February 2013 was deleted.

During the break, Pistorius stood huddled with his legal team as the media spoke about the contents of the web history.

Pistorius is on trial for the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

Law graduate Steenkamp was shot dead in his Pretoria home on 14 February 2013.

At his bail hearing last year Pistorius submitted that he thought Steenkamp was an intruder.
