There is a saying that a kind of Android phone may instead of the blackberry to land into the White House. Is is real? Why not the iOS can't instead of it?

According to some latest reports, Samsung or LG may become one of members in the White House. What's wrong with Apple iPhone?:(

I don't really care what type of phone the president is forced to use since it's not his choice what he uses. Whatever phone he uses isn't going to be a real android or iphone anyways due to the security needed for that high of an official. That's probably why they have him using android since it's easier to configure for security officials instead of a proprietary OS like iOS.

No idea. What are your sources? Always consider the source.

Don't know the details but there are strict security requirements as stated above. Doesn't necessarily mean that there's anything "wrong" with the iPhone or any other device not selected.

I'm not going to be pleased if Samsung becomes president. I might put up with LG's policies but but it's not getting my vote.

Thanks, a nice review! But before, I got some news about some goverment departments were allowed to use iPhone and iPad for working. So it is amazed me that Apple may be out in this case.

It doesn't mean there is something wrong with Apple iPhone, I just want to ask why Apple iPhone can't be the selection.

Uh...I must take more time to learn English.

Thanks a lot for your reviews!

If it makes you feel better, Obama loves the iPhone.
I am just curious about why apple can't be their selection. I think if the blackberry is really replaced, it may be a competion between Apple and LG, which both are made in US. It amazed me Samsung was in the queue.

There is no doubts they are all strong in the world. Maybe for the security sake, it is no matter with native or adventive company.

"A White House spokesman said that the Executive Office of the President is not involved in any pilot program for testing non-BlackBerry phones and that there is nothing new to share about the president's BlackBerry."

And as I said the last time someone gawked over comments about the President not using iPhones: it's not about the device security... it's about whatever the White House's IT department is capable of developing for what THEY see as "secure." For the longest time they've implemented software for Blackberries. More than likely, they'll continue doing that because it's easier than learning to develop or deploy for anything else, iPhones included.

What's amazing about this is, when the "news" broke that the President might be testing non-Blackberry devices, Blackberry's stock took a 2.5% dive. I'm gobsmacked at what investors will do over what a single user does.

(And regardless of who he is, he IS still just a single user, who by the way, has a use-case that is so different from anyone else's that it's practically irrelevant to most other people what he is using. If shareholders honestly believe that people aren't buying Blackberries anymore because maybe the President might someday stop using his, well, we now have sheer abject incompetence to explain what happens to stock prices.)

Also, the Defense Department and other agencies are allowing non-Blackberries in a pilot program, but they include Apple products as well as Android-based models.

The iPhone isn't made in the US. I don't think LG phones are either.
