Reply Norman R. on January 22, 2009 at 1:01 am President Barack Obama… I like the sound of that. Reply RL on January 22, 2009 at 7:51 am Now, that’s nice to see that the prez has the same passion. I would not want to give mine up either Reply Kells on January 22, 2009 at 8:47 am Do you think that he will put a computer in the Oval Office? Reply GrantL on January 22, 2009 at 9:51 am From what I’ve read, it’s not actually a Berry that they’re letting him use; something called a Sectera Edge http://news.zdnet.com/2100-9595_22-262060.html http://edition.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/01/22/obama.blackberry/ Still, the fact that he’s pressed hard enough and been allowed to get a smartphone of any kind is a major win IMHO Reply The Rock on January 22, 2009 at 6:13 pm Robb is correct. Sure looks like President Obama will keep his BB for personal use and will use a Sectera Edge for business. http://www.boygeniusreport.com/2009/01/21/obama-keeps-berry-for-personal-use-uses-clunky-sectera-edge-for-official-business/ Reply Thought on January 22, 2009 at 9:46 pm It’s so nice having a real President again! Reply GrantL on January 23, 2009 at 8:31 am @The Rock Maybe, but lots of conflicting information out there. http://www.engadget.com/2009/01/22/dear-mainstream-media-obamas-new-phone-isnt-a-blackberry-mig/ Reply GrantL on January 23, 2009 at 8:45 am I guess this clears things up…doesn’t get more official than a White House press briefing http://www.engadget.com/2009/01/22/confirmed-obama-gets-his-blackberry-no-sectera-edge-in-sight/ Reply Gabriel on January 23, 2009 at 11:23 am That’s not a blackberry! It’s so large and clunky and, worst of all, runs Windows Mobile! If they wanted Obama to give up his PDA, they sure took the easiest route. Give him a phone that runs on Windows and he’ll stop using it on his own! Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
