Oh wow...sorry. That article was dated this morning, so I figured it was current.
Now I will say I am sorry because of the picture used I assumed it was an older news piece. That is the most up to date one. My apologies.

I am so tired of hearing about Obama. Don't get me wrong I voted for him but the media is going to run him in the ground. Argh Enough already.

Watching the WH Briefing it appears it is still actually a Blackberry that has been adjusted for security .
update: Searching and reading online it appears no one knows for sure and maybe the press sec..just says its a BB so Obama doesn't have as bad a withdrawal. Now I am finding reports it made by GD and runs windows mobile..Naw that wont get hacked...and yes I am bored or else I wouldn't be wasting my time.

RIM is probably designing an Obama Blackberry right now. It will blow the storms and bolds and new curves away. haha... If he did get rid of it and he sold it I wonder how much it would bring on eBay. Seeing as his car is outrageous on there...
Here's another article, this one says he gets to keep it.
The Sectera looks like an extremely interesting device.

I can't even fathom what it would be like for the president. It would almost be like being in prison. All alone except for a handful of people to interact with. His Berry would allow him a modicum of normalcy in an environment that has to be as removed from normal as any environment could be.
I only hope that, if RIM comes up with more security features, they feel free to pass them on to the common-folk among us.

i think this is by far the best way too put the issue. he is very intelligent so let him decide what he can and can't do

Its now Official
Barack Obama is keeping his BlackBerry or "BarackBerry" as it is now called.
Correct me if i am wrong , but sources say this handset is protected and worth $3250
Not cheap, but I guess keeping in touch is what Americans want a president to do so their issues could be addressed.
Gone are the days when the President speaks on TV and receives responses in Polls
I'd love to have his PIN lol
Ha ha ha
A Spy-proof Handset is gonna be made for him, even though he keeps his BlackBerry to send messages to close advisers and friends only
President Obama's calling the shots. Technology will then have to adjust to support His needs!
And the tax payer will pay ton's of money so one guy can have something they will not sell to anybody else. This is a great idea, our government has too much trouble securing it's computers
