    BlackBerry Gets a Marketing Boost from Obama

    Good For BB or Bad?....

    statesman.com:
    DALLAS — President-elect Barack Obama's unpaid endorsement of the BlackBerry has provided maker Research In Motion Ltd. with a marketing boost its competitors can only dream of. Now, if the company is lucky, Obama will stop using it.
    Obama has lobbied to keep the device over the concerns of the Secret Service. Although a presidential BlackBerry would enhance the maker's image, its encryption would be a target for spies, putting its "sterling" reputation for confidentiality at risk, analyst Roger Entner said.
    "The moment it becomes known that Barack Obama uses his BlackBerry 8830 World Edition, you know that a significant share of Russia's signal intelligence and China's signal intelligence and cyberintelligence budgets will be targeted to break it," said Entner, an analyst with market researcher Nielsen Co. in Boston.

    Obama isn't alone in craving a gadget to link him to the outside world. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice lost her access to such devices when she took the job and probably will get an iPhone after she steps down Jan. 20, said Sean McCormack, her spokesman.

    I love this part:
    "I'm still clinging to my BlackBerry. They're going to pry it out of my hands," Obama said recently.

    I like the part,

    If Obama uses a vanilla BlackBerry, he should use it with the assumption that the world will read it," Entner said. "His counterparts in the capitals of several countries will read it.
    Knowing that, he could get some messages across, unofficially, much easier than writing a policy paper.... ;-)

    I wonder what his username is on the Stacks???

    Better a president who is willing to grip his berry to the death than one who admits he never uses computers.

    This is probably the best product endorsement ever... The RIM marketing people must be jumping up and down with excitement.

    What? He can't be considered an addict if he doesn't make excuses to get away for a minute here and there to STACK!
