I would say it smells like desperation over at the Moonie Times, but I'm pretty sure that's the way it always smells over there...

IIRC Obama had a BlackBerry for awhile ago. RIM made him one that was compliant for the security which was necessary once he became President. They'd spoken about marketing it but the idea was nixed as a potential security issue.

It says less about Obama and more to the fact that they've effectively kept him in a secure environment for over four years. The last thing the Secret Service wants is the President to just up and have his own unencrypted communications devices, even if it is to "remain current."

He's was a black berry guy before he was elected, and I'm pretty sure that White House staff mobiles are all some military grade black berry type handset.

This is the same President whose campaign team started to move in and said, "What the fark is this shiat" to all the WH technology. IIRC, it was a multi-month fight just to get Obama a Blackberry (he has a super-special heavy-encryption one), because no President previous to him had owned a smartphone.
