    All this talk lately about whether or not he can still have his BB once he becomes President simply made me curious. Anyone know?

    youd think he would have a more up to date BB, but then again the older BB's are the most reliable

    I've never seen an up close picture with him and his BB but from the far away shots it looks like an 88xx model, but then again I haven't seen a sharp crisp image up close so who knows.

    I believe he had more than one BB at one time, but most of the pictures, I usually see the 8700c.

    Yeah, I would've assumed he'd have a newer model. Hmm..

    Same here.

    I may have subconsciously been hoping he had a Storm like me, haha. Apparently not, though.

    so do the stories hold true that they are really trying to make him give up his blackberry?

    well we know it's probably NOT the storm.

    But I think if Barack was like "I want a Blackberry Storm," RIM/VZW would be cranking out official updates like crazy. They'll probably be like "We at Verizon are helping Barack Obama change the world... with the network" or something

    What was more important to me was he said he had it to keep in touch with the people...what applications does he use to do that with?

    I thought he had a Curve, but the NYTimes reports it's an 8830 (of course, they may mean an 8330). I know he USED to have an 8700c.

    I've only ever seen pictures of the 8700c. The 8830 would make a lot of sense, though, given the globetrotting.

    I kind of like that he doesn't opt for the "latest and greatest" at the sacrifice of solid, proven function. Obviously, he could afford whichever he wanted, but the appearance of the high end model and the switching fever that seems so rampant among some CB users doesn't seem to have grabbed him, which is nice.

    LMAO! Right, two SS agents standing next to the Verizon guy. They would eat that up.

    Just read something on a new site (can't remember if it was C|Net or NY Times), and they said it was an 8830 with Verizon.

    I think he has two, I believe one is a silver 88XX and the other is an 8700c, there's a pretty crisp image on the NY Times website. Search "Obama" and "Blackberry".
