    So there you have it, the leader of the free world is the proud owner of an iPad 2!

    Not sure how they justified Obama's iPad 2 being Wi-Fi + 3G version.

    And by the way, no, he's not using an Android or Google operating system. Bad luck Xoom and Samsung...

    Old news.

    That's his preference.

    Some people prefer Android, others not.

    That way Steve can keep track of his location at all times.

    Probably because he is always on the move. Doesn't he also have a blackberry?

    The day Steve gets rid of his 80's black polo sweater and worker blue denim jeans, I'll believe whatever he says.

    I bet it's a special OS specifically designed for Obama, with extra-secure features and protective privacy information, especially the recent news that Apple is tracking user information via location services.

    Haha, wouldn't you expect the president owning a Wi-Fi only iPad? That would be humiliating.

    Obama: hmm... I'm outta funds because of the current economic deficit ($1.5 trillion). I'll go with Wi-Fi only model
    Steve Jobs: Sorry Mr. President, would you allow me a minute to get changed out of my black polo neck sweater and blue denim jeans.
    Obama: I want a smart cover also. Is it expensive?

    I'm sure there is an app for that!

    Humiliating for him perhaps, but there is nothing wrong with the wifi only model, especially if one is barely using their monthly data on their cellphone, no need to buy anouther plan.

    You think he got it from one of those Asian gangs?

    My comment was about "the leader of the free world" part. But I would also guess that Obama's iPad2 runs a special, super secure iOS version.

    LOL. Note that Obama didn't get the leather cover, and goes for the gray smart cover.

    At least he doesn't have 3 iPads like (former) DC Mayor Adrian Fenty.

    The real reason he got the iPad

    What is not mentioned is that the real reason that he got an iPad is so that he can play the game Angry Birds whenever he wants without his kids taking over the laptop.

    After watching almost every single photo of april on White House's Flickr profile, I can confirm that Obama has an iPad2 3G.

    Here is the proof:

    Just zoom it, its on the desk.

    I wonder whats inside his consolidated.db file.

    I'm sure this news should go viral in 3, 2, 1 ...
