Obama wants cooler phones in the White House, Microsoft tweets it can be arranged

Obama wants cooler phones in the White House, Microsoft tweets it can be arranged
The President entered his term with an initial fight to keep his BlackBerry phone, which he won, claiming that the alternatives shown were all secure, but uninspiring hulks of a phone. Obama is obviously still not satisfied with what the White House has to offer in terms of gadget tech. He was recorded commenting off-script in Chicago about the older technology WH staff is using:

"The Oval Office, I always thought I was going to have really cool phones and stuff. I'm like, c'mon guys, I'm the president of the United States. Where's the fancy buttons and stuff and the big screen comes up? It doesn't happen.", he was caught saying at a small fundraising event in the Windy City.

His confession promptly made the teases at Redmond come up with the following tweet:

It's a funny story, but in all seriousness, would you say Microsoft's Windows Phones are ripe for daily usage by the US President, or would you recommend another handset? Although, after saying that a certain executive is the symbol of the American Dream, the President might have his pick cut out for him.
