Obama’s BlackBerrys

President Obama is well known to be a fan of the BlackBerry. So much so, that he has two of them. Identified in this picture aboard Air Force One as two BlackBerry Curve 8300 handsets, he is rarely snapped by White House photographers without a BlackBerry either in shot or holstered to his belt. BlackBerrys are the only mobile devices approved by the U.S. government for low-level classification document sharing.

But when Obama is on the go to and from the White House to conduct his presidential duties, he takes his (multiple) BlackBerrys with him to keep him connected to what's going on at the 'office.'
In the past couple of years, he has upgraded his old BlackBerry Curve 8300 devices with newer BlackBerry Curve 8900 smartphones to keep ahead of the technological curve. And no, that's not yet another BlackBerry phone in his hand -- that one stays in the car.
