President Obama is "not allowed" an iPhone
For security reasons, it's Blackberry for you Mr President and that's no fun!
Being the President of the USA can’t be an easy job and Barrack Obama doesn’t even have the luxury of a decent smartphone to help him unwind.
Attending a meeting with a group of youngsters, yesterday, the President admitted that he was not permitted to carry an iPhone – and presumably an Android handset – due to security reasons.
The President has been known to use an iPad, however, although presumably that’s locked down for messaging and email purposes.
Obama’s daughters are confirmed as iPhone users, though, with the President remarking that they “seem to spend a lot of time” using them, during the same address.
Blackberry currently supply the President with his phone after he fought hard to keep it back in 2009 but he later admitted that the phone was “no fun,” owing to the fact it was incredibly locked down and only 10 people have the authorisation to email it.
"I'm not allowed, for security reasons, to have an iPhone," he said during a speech at the White House.
