Obama To Keep His Blackberry…. For Personal Use [UPDATED]

I guess that “Yes We Can” extends to gadgets. Apparently President Barack Obama will get to keep his Blackberry addiction for personal use only. For official US Government use, he’ll have to use a Sectera Edge, is a NSA approved “phone” (it looks huge in the pictures) that runs Windows Mobile.

That’s a let down. But if it allows him to keep his BlackBery addiction, so be it.

UPDATE: Engadget is reporting that President Obama is going to keep his Blackberry addiction and the data on the handheld will be subject to the Presidential Records Act. This came during the daily press briefing. Also of note, there was no mention Sectera Edge.
