BlackBerry Z10 used for Head-of-State portrait at Mandela's memorial
We already know that President Barack Obama loves BlackBerry handsets. While he does also sport an Apple iPad 2 given to him by none other than the late Steve Jobs, the Commander-in-Chief recently said that for security reasons, he is not allowed to use the Apple iPhone.

Over in Africa, at the memorial service for the late Nelson Mandela, British Prime Minister David Cameron, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt and Obama posed for a self-portrait using a BlackBerry Z10. It certainly looks like the First Lady isn't exactly thrilled with the situation. Take a good look at her face.

Is it that the she feels that this situation is too serious for such behavior? Or is she mad at the president for "flirting" withe Prime Minister of Denmark?

Ha ha I love how he describes it as "over in Africa". Like its one country or South Africa has no identity. No matter what you some people never seem to appreciate that. Woe is us, us poor Africans;)

If Obama uses his phone just for just basics and wants to do it safely, Z10 is good choice. And RIP, Nelson. You were a great man.

Dumb statement. Probably need to educate yourself before such utterance.

No really, he is an absolute disgrace. You don't take selfies at a memorial service, especially when its for someone like Mandella.

Can't refrain from making idiotic statement can you? Memorial service for a 95year old is a mourning time to you I guess? Or are you taking a shot at Mr President, using this as a disguise? South Africans, if you did not know are celebrating Madiba's passing and not mourning.

In South Africa - when a much loved person dies, particularly an elderly person, people cry for about a day - and then PARTY for a week until the funeral. They CELEBRATE a person's life. Most people don't even wear black at the funeral! Trust me, the atmosphere was probably more festive than anything else. And why wouldn't it be? The man lived a long and VERY FRUITFUL life - we should all be so lucky to die like that. Besides, his "life" in recent months had made him a prisoner once again - he is free now. Let people celebrate!

Dear Alan,

Africa is a huge place, not the size of your grandmother's kitchen. FNB Stadium in Johannesburg SA. Or you could have just said "Soccer City."

Meanwhile our First Lady Margaret Kenyatta sitting extreme left with spectacles on. =)

Label the pictures:
Picture 1
Barrack - wow this chick's pretty hot for a head of state and she kinda digs me!
Michelle - .....
Picture 2
Barrack - oh man I've been ignoring Michelle while flirting with this blond chick.
Michelle - don't even look over here now. Go take some more selfies with your little friend in heat.
Picture 3
Barrack - I am so going to not enjoy the next few days of my life. Might as well go find Raul and press the flesh.
Michelle - I'll just sit here between you and my husband who is much more famous than you, biznatch.
