Obama's BlackBerry takes a dive - Proves it's still affected by gravity

Obama Drops BlackBerry

A while back we posted a poll asking how many of you have dropped your device. Over 80% of those that voted have dropped their device at least once, with a crazy 26% dropping it five times or more. Well President Barak Obama is now part of the dropped BlackBerry club as he was actually caught on camera as he dropped his device on a recent trip to Tennessee. It appears that it wasn't his slippery fingers that lost it but maybe a sub-par holster clipped onto his pants. As he was trotting along, the device seemed to pop off and take a short trip to the pavement. Word is that all is well since the device was safely inside the holster case, but perhaps Mr. Obama might want to invest in some better protection like an OtterBox or an upgraded hard case?

Obama's BlackBerry takes a dive - Proves it's still affected by gravity


I thought we figured out Barry didn't have a BlackBerry?
Can't wait for America to do to him what he did to his phone - except his phone wasn't broken before the fall :D

If it broke he'll probably have another one sent to him in like 10 minutes with everything transfered to the new bb so he probably doesn't care whether to get a case or not lol.

My uncle works for a software company that makes POS billing systems. His company replaced his Blackberry 3 times already. He drop the phone in toilets, run over by his suv, etc, etc. Every time he brake it, the company replaced it within a day. I guess, if you are holding a high positions in a company, its like being President too ;)

I am sure Obama will get is BlackBerry replaced in minutes.

LOL :)I was waiting for the Bus when I typed that... LOL I know its funny when I read it as well...

The thing is you don't have to be a President of US to get free phones if you find a good job that gives you free phones. :)

I would think they have a dozen of blackberries in the Air Force One and his car, just in case, he breaks one :)

Lets give Obama a case, I mean its our tax dollars in the end of the day. haha

Would be funny to find his BB PIN and do random status updates that will trigger him to message you, haha. :D

It would be soooo cool having him on BBM, i would "ping" him every day on the 1hr. I would be one of those BBM stalkers! lol

Saw another pic where he was getting in or out of a limo and his 9000 took a spill and the battery case popped off. I know his pain! Every time my 9000 takes a spill the case and battery go flying as well. Still works like a charm though ;)

Do you think POTUS is required to turn off his Blackberry (and maybe even his iPad) below 10,000 feet while flying AF 1?

I think not !

He should get a Playbook. The next time the Navy Seals have an operation, he could just stream the live feed to Playbook One and wouldn't have to go to the situation room =)

My 9700 is a TANK!!!!! I've dropped this thing at LEAST 12 times!!!!! And my 3 year old has dropped it about 6 times! I'm pretty sure he has one of superior quality! He probably wont even need another one. :)

I wonder why he is not carrying an iPhone? Do you think It might be because the iPhone does not offer the same security that Blackberry offers....Inquiring minds want to know!!!!

i like the 2nd pic where he's got his strut on.... straightening his jacket without knowin blackberry 1 was going down.

I've dropped mine a half dozen times. I have one tiny boo boo on it, and that is it.
These things were built for a life time of enjoyment.
The pres has a BB .... so so cool.
When I was in Vegas last month, all the cool good looking people had BB.
You know who had those other phones !?
