    Regardless of whether the claim is true or not it seems to me one of the most flattering things I've heard said about BlackBerry in quite a while. ( It might actually be more factual to say that Rupert Murdoch can run the country from his BlackBerry. )

    Great advertising for BlackBerry, actually truth be told ,I too run my show from my BlackBerry :-)) even when I'm on vacation, it's reliable and secure. It allows for true Freedom and Flexibility . I have been able to communicate with my colleagues on the go.

    It is very good advertising, no question about that. And ironically, it's probably the only brand of phone he could mention and get away with it. You couldn't imagine 'government by iPhone' could you?

    Anyway, from a personal perspective I find it ridiculous how political leaders get stick for taking holidays. I don't see how it's in any way better to have a national leader knackered and grumpy. They need holidays - we can criticise a lot of things, but this is ridiculous. He's in Cornwall, not the Grenadines relying on iffy wifi.

    I doubt there will ever be a good time for any leader to take a vacation nowadays with everything going on in the world. Glad he has his BlackBerry.

    I absolutely rely on mine while juggling work, family and our many activities. He is taking advantage of the work life balance.

    So David Cameron has a BlackBerry...


    Where's the nearest iPhone store?

    Joking aside, sure it's not that impressive that somebody can run a country with a BlackBerry (well, I guess it is since it's still a smartphone). But I just think BlackBerry is well suited to the task at hand. But even though he can do it, I don't think he should, the world unfortunately looks down on BlackBerry and he probably looks worse as a Prime Minister for it. Makes it seem like he's putting off work (which is... lousy if you're running the country..)

    Interesting idea... while the article really doesn't say much about the methods, etc, it still is a little bit of an advertisement in and of itself. If he feels the BlackBerry is more than capable to give him the accessibility he needs to be able to leave the office and still be on top of things in his offices, then that is a lot of faith placed on the security and reliability of his choice of device.

    I definitely understand those of you who say that you will reply to work related items right on the BlackBerry even when sitting right at the PC. I think a fair number of people are becoming like that bit by bit, especially since our emails always push right to our phones. Our BlackBerry devices are notoriously reliable in so many circumstances for both receiving and properly sending out communications, and they are right there. Why open up a new window at the PC when we can just swipe, tap, read and reply? I often put my Z30 To use a lot at work to speed up searches and such for clients.

    World looks down on BlackBerry? Please! As for the issue of whether he should. The man needs private time. If whilst on vacation he can use his BlackBerry to still stay in touch and in the loop, why not? The article really is silly apart from the fact that you can perform your duties as PM securely through a BlackBerry device
    I can't tell you the number of times I have had business conducted over my BlackBerry from sending faxes emails pdf documents conference calls all done whilst I sit on a beach enjoying a cigar and mojito :-)

    HA! I thought I was the only one that did that. I'll have multiple projects open on my desktop ( docked Thinkpad W540 with 24" monitor) and my Q sitting on my desk to respond to e-mail and edit documents.

    Bottom line is that the only work these executive positions require is listening (hopefully), discussing (less likely), and making decisions. With a staff and advisers, it's hard to believe anything other than a phone with a calling plan is required. Anything else is just an open door for politicians to get in trouble.

    Like Angela Merkel he's using a Q10 : PM David Cameron Can Run Britain ?By BlackBerry? | N4BB

    I wonder how many of them will be using a Passport? Crackberry should have a thread (maybe they already have) where pictures of VIP's rocking a BlackBerry are collected. Always good to make a statement.

    He's the Prime Minister, not the dictator of North Korea. Primus inter pares - there are other people in the government too.
