Barrack Obama uses Blackberry

Barrack Obama uses Blackberry. Not sure which model he carries. This is a great coup for RIM folks. And they richly deserve it. Given the circumstances they have been, with all the lawsuits and other things......RIM deserves better.

Barrack Obama using Blackberry has a problem. If he wins the primaries and goes on to win the elections and becomes the President of the U.S.A, he will probably need to forgo the device. Such a pity! It appears that Western governments such as France and the U.S.A discourage the use of Blackberry amongst senior level executives.

Maybe RIM can address their security and data protection concerns. Just a thought!
