    "Sorry, Mr. President. Please surrender your BlackBerry. Those are seven words President-elect Barack Obama is dreading but expecting to hear, friends and advisers say, when he takes office in 65 days."

    This sounds like a 'cold dead fingers' scenario to me. At least he did not have an iToy. In that case he would have given it up without any comment from the NYT.

    It is significant that in these days of Blackberry iPhone wars that the real power brokers use Blackberrys and it is a fine comment on the phone that these people choose the Blackberry because of its inherrent security. This is something that the iPhone can, by its design of email system, never, ever have.

    Well, just look for a Newbie call PresO and a Device Model: Not a BlackBerry SmartPhone user. That'll be him

    Really? So you are telling me an iPhone can't make you have just as much of an addiction as a Blackberry? If anything, with all the apps it has to offer, it can make your addiction worse. I agree with you on the security features, for now. I still see the iPhone as being very productive, while also letting you have a lot of fun. I don't see that as being a toy, I see that as being a pretty well rounded device.

    EDIT: Also, that sucks for Obama.

    He'll probably get a BB with his official white house email delivered by BES and put his personal BB in a draw for the next 8 years.

    First he had to give up smoking, and now this? Next, they'll tell him he has to eat beets with every meal. I thought we were trying to end torture, but look what we're putting this poor guy through, and he's not even the President yet!
