President Barack Obama has gotten a ‘security enhanced’ super $3,000 Blackberry that he will be allowed to use as president. Obama used a Blackberry 8700 during the presidential campaign, but it looked likely that Obama would have to give up his Blackberry due to security risks and the Presidential Records Act of 1978. Reports state that Obama’s new Blackberry may actually be the General Dynamics Sectera Edge. Watch the phone in action above.
The president has a BlackBerry through a compromise that allows him to stay in touch with senior staff and a small group of personal friends,” Gibbs said at a White House press conference, “in a way that use will be limited and that the security is enhanced to ensure his ability to communicate, but to do so effectively and to do so in a way that is protected.” (foxnews)
