Barack Obama took a selfie on a BlackBerry Z10

We recently heard that US President Barack Obama is sticking with his BlackBerry and actually isn't allowed to use an iPhone, but what we didn't know is just what device the President has by his side. He's been a Bold 9900 user for quite a while now, but it looks like he may have recently upgraded to the BlackBerry 10 train. 

From the looks of this photo, taken at Nelson Mandela's memorial service, Mr. Obama may very well be using a BlackBerry Z10 now. The photo shows the President taking a selfie with UK Prime Minister David Cameron and Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt while using a Z10. Of course the device could very well belong to one of the other parties but we're banking it belonging to the POTUS (or at least we hope it does -- because that would be awesome). 

Update: Word on the street is that the Z10 doesn't actually belong to the POTUS, but maybe he liked it enough to get one of his own soon?

Thanks Rich!

Secondly, the lady looks like she is really admiring his phone. She's got both hands on it while he has one. And look at Michelle's face! Not at all amused! Watch your phone mr. prez!

The PM of Denmark is Helle Thorning-Schmid, an attractive politician. Michelle has good reason not to be amused.
She holds the phone with two hands telling me that the phone is hers. Not that she couldn't get a replacement phone if she happened to drop it. It's the hassle of waiting for a replacement with all the loaded security features in place. No?

It does belong to her. POTUS and UK PM both use BBOS devices AFAIK. Though I can't tell which device is shown in the link.

I dunno, I think anyone who had to put up with a taste of the shenanigans in Congress would be suicidal. He's certainly greying out because of these unprecedented back-scratching rubbish. Folks should be free to vote with their conscience rather than following party lines. With only two major parties, it's always a two sided issue: left & right, black & white, yes & no, up & down. I think there is room for compromise - for a middle ground - and room for a third option.

Is that his phone or the Danish PM's phone? She has two hands on it to his one.

Off topic, but Michelle does not seem too happy with Barry's proximity to his new BFF. Just sayin'...

A known traitor, really? Funny. He's your best president in years. You have no idea how politics work. His hands are tied by the two party system, the rich that control everything, and the disaster Bush caused. He's made it much better than it was before he came to the seat.

Should Obama be taking selfies with his friends at the *Nelson Mandela memorial service*? Hmm... Looks like Michelle understands that a memorial service requires a little solemnity!

dguillaume

Anyone else think it's completely inappropriate to be taking a "Selfie" at a memorial service?

jstirtzinger

It's not exactly a funeral/memorial service in the way you are implying....it is the celebration of a great man who died of natural causes at an old age. There was dancing and joy expressed at this event - was that inappropriate as well?

Genghis2k3

...AND, it's not at all unusual for people at/after funerals to take photos with friends or acquaintances with whom they otherwise have infrequent face-to-face contact.

To answer your question jstirtzinger, for those that already hate Obama, everything be does is inappropriate.

dguillaume

jstirtzinger - Good point, Well made

Pete The Penguin

Pneumonia isn't a "natural cause"... Just saying.

jstirtzinger

LOL what do you define as "natural" then? He was 95 yrs old and wasn't murdered or hit by a bus. Just saying. :-)

bbfanboi

Not if you don't see those folks everyday. It's a gathering to celebrate Mandela's life, but every one of them travelled far to get there. It's rare to have so many heads of state in one place. Like MJL suggests, it may be why Michelle looks so pissed! We have to cut Obama some slack as the actual funeral is tomorrow.
Happy there were no incidents. South Africans should be proud there have been no violence, but obviously Mr. Zuma and the ANC will have to reflect on his political career after today :)
Not to make a political statement, but I think it was shameful of Netanyahu to use the excuse that the trip was too costly and a security risk. If the president of the United States can get there, anyone else can.

somebody should ask Mr. Obama who's phone was that...

I bet you that Obama could do more to help revive Blackberry sales to governments the world over than even more than Justin Bieber could have done to consumers.

Besides Obama touting the BB10 platforms many outstanding feature sets and built-in separation between work/government accounts vs personal accounts Obama could tell the foreign leaders that, “hey and if you go Blackberry platform you also don’t have to worry about me getting NSA to spy on you or your countries other government officials”.

That could close so many BB10 and BES server sales.

She's attractive?

I wouldn't even stop to look at that in the mall if she walked past me. Michelle has nothing to worry about.

General dynamics updated the security on his blackberry. The same thing would have to happen with the z10.

Governments seem like an idea home for the surplus Z10 stock from last quarter. Have to wonder how much stock has moved since as a result of renewed government interest.

Really they are smiling while looking at it saying "I can't believe Blackberry make a billion dollars worth of these thinking they would sell!"

PS. Unfortunate owner the Z10 here. I've have probably 25-20 BB's since 2006. Mind you that was only 4 different models though....warranty issues FTW?

Wasn't this supposed to be like some kind of memorial/funeral? Why are they taking selfies like they're hanging out?

Funeral is on Sunday, this was a celebration of his life. even had horns and what not going in the stadium by people that attended along with dancing etc..

Didn't they already discover that he had a bullet proof z10?

jcraig

Maybe she was showing off Time Shift with the front camera. Next thing you know all White House staff will have Z10s.

And p.s. A selfie at a memorial?? "Hey it's me at Nelson Mandela's memorial service! CHEESE!"......nice obamatard. way to respect a great man.....

I didn't know there were so many Obama haters on this site.

Some of you are spitting venom like you were actually there and know the context of why the photo was taken.

I totally agree, they need to sit and watch the entire video of the ceremony, then come back and post their comments.

Looks like Michelle is very uncomfortable among them especially the president sat next to the blonde. I bet Michelle said to herself, I will get you Mr. President when we return. Why on earth you sat next to the blonde one? Why? Mr. President replied: Michelle, this is politics...Don't you know this already!

This "selfie" is actually making it on to a lot of the UK newspapers, with the BlackBerry logo showing very clearly,

In marketing terms, you cannot pay for that type of publicity.

Although the phone used by Mr Obama is called a "BlackBerry", it isn't made by them.
It's made by a defence contractor, General Dynamics.

Shouldn't the title of this story be "Danish Prime Minister takes selfie with Obama on HER Z10"?

Wouldn't it be nice if bloggers actually checked facts before posting their stories?

Bloggers are incapable of checking facts......

I support giving Obama a Z30. It has a better chance of choking that liberal weiner. Actually, make it good and give the wingnut a Note 3.

He is just so cool.
The coolest prez we ever had.
So, so, so, cool.
Can't believe how cool he is....
Wow...so, so, so cool.
So, very cool!

Who really cares people. His approval rating in the United States is at all time low and dropping daily. Currently lower then George W. Bush. I just want you to know who your posting about. He will go down as the worst US President in history.

A great man dies and Obama thinks it's ok to act like a lonely teenage girl and take pictures of himself.. bad taste imo..

Posted via CB10

Frankbze

To each his own opinion but watch the entire video of the ceremony and see how any other people were taking pictures.

Posted via CB10

Geoff Diss

devin266, the entire stadium was celebrating Mandela's life, led by a boisterous, smiling, singing South African crowd... bands playing, drums beating, hips swinging, hands clapping. It was the mood. Obama was simply in that mood. And it was the mood Nelson Mandela would have wanted! Life's for the living. Freedom and those who bring it are to be celebrated, not mourned :-)

24 hours later, this picture should be on every possible social media outlet for BlackBerry boosting. Come on BlackBerry. This is free advertisement, just like the shout out President Obama gave BlackBerry I'm his interview just a week or so ago.
