President receives special version of BlackBerry 8830 World Edition?

President receives special version of BlackBerry 8830 World Edition?
BlackBerry Cool is reporting that the President Barack Obama has received a new cellphone for use around the White House and while traveling. Obama's new device is a specially configured BlackBerry 8830 World Edition loaded with a special software program called SecureVoice. This security program was written by a company called Genesis Key and is designed to provide access to NSA Top Secret information that is in turn the highest grade of security classification. SecureVoice is apparently designed to run alongside the BlackBerry OS and ironically is supported by any 8830 or Curve 83xx so that others using SecureVoice can communicate with each other. Consumers, though, cannot purchase the precious software.

The President is known to be a true BlackBerry addict and after winning the election, he was told he would have to give up his 'Berry in order to keep conversations secure. Instead, a collaboration between RIM, the NSA, the White House Communications Agency and Genesis Key was able to devise a solution to keep a RIM manufactured device in Obama's hands.

Wow the president gets basically anything he wants. This is just a guess but I think that RIM worked with NSA so Obama could keep his Blackberry for advertising purposes. I mean of course you want the most known person and business man in the U.S. to be using your product. I just hope he doesn't lose it.

Boy I'd like to trash Obama right now too, but let's be honest, this is a phone forum... Yeah, take a jab here and there (I have), but writing an essay on how much you dislike and hate Obama?... Not to classy on a phone forum dude.

Do you even know how long it took us to get out of the last depression? President Roosevelt proposed and created so many new laws but it only affected the economy just a little bit. And I think it's good that Obama is getting aquainted with world powers because if he needs their cooperation in some global problem/plan in the near future, negotiations won't be as difficult as difficult because he had already taken the time to familiar himself with those people. It's always about communication and relationships. That's one of the reasons why Ronald Raegan (I don't think that's spelled right) was such a good president.

he said spread the wealth he want to tke a peice of every one pay check and do whatg he want with it thats equally poor / im so against corporated greed but i dont think that large corp. should get highr tax rate if they do that they will have to cut people there are alot of companies that arnt involved in corp greed / they will have to lay people off because they cant afford to pay them because of highr tax or no tax breaks thus highering the unemployment rate

dude, nobody really has the experience to handle the situation this country is in. Nobody knows exactly how to change the economy and knows exactly the outcome. Its always going to be "lets try this, we think this will work". I understand someone older and someone that has governed a state, maybe more "qualified", but that still doesn't mean they know what the heck their doing.

I Know How To Fix The Problem...... Give Every American $150,000 1. People Would Buy Cars 2. People Would Pay Off/Catch Up On Home Morgtage 3. People Would Pay Off Credit Cards 4. People Would Spend In General! Problem Solved, No Need For Bailouts for greedy companys this makes it so that they only get what they deserve unlike it is now they get the money the consumer gets nothing out of it for the most part, still gotta pay their bills Etc....

Theres this thing, you may of heard of.. its called inflation? So what happens when everyone has all this "money" this means that this "money" isnt worth anything. The value of the dollar is in its scarcity. On to my real point. This is a phone Forum. not a Political forum. Based on some of the very uneducated responces, thank God its not

That was stupid when it first showed up on the internet and the math was wrong. The fact that people still use it to illustrate some kind of point is pretty hilarious.

You're the biggest idiot in the world. You think the dollar is worth nothing now? Imagine throwing 300 TRILLION DOLLARS in free money out in the economy at once. Inflation times 10,000,000. Thats how you throw the entire planet into a depression that we could not get out of.

You just like to annoy people vzw fanman. You see people angry and unhappy and you just had to add that you thought it was funny. That's something you could have kept to yourself.

He's got AT&T, Verizon, Metro, Sprint, T-Mo, Virgin and every other cell service available. The official President's Phone that he has (other than his Blackberry) is CDMA and GSM capable and it is engineered to work where there is cell service regardless of what technology the closest cell tower is. All in all, I am sure he's got great coverage wherever he is.
