Obama BlackBerry

Speaking to a group of young people at the White House on Wednesday, Obama admitted he not allowed to have iPhone due to security reasons

“I’m not allowed for security reasons to have an iPhone,” Obama told a group of young people at the White House for an event promoting his health care law. He added that his daughters Sasha and Malia spend a lot of time on their iPhones.

BlackBerry is known in Government and Enterprise as the Gold Standard in security, having been authorized more times for higher security clearances than any other OS or hardware. While BlackBerry remains in a stagnant state with the hope it can turnaround in the coming fiscal quarters, the company remains the only smartphone and service provider to be given “authority to operate” on U.S. Defense Dept. networks.
