In a town hall meeting broadcast Monday night on Spanish-language TV network Univision, the President admitted he still has his BlackBerry and has added another mobile device to his collection.
Here is the President Obama chit-chat with Univision anchor Jorge Ramos:
Ramos: Not long ago I was having a conversation with my son. He’s only 12 years old, and he couldn’t believe that I grew up in a world where there were no cell phones, no Internet, no computers. (Laughter.) So do you have your BlackBerry with you, or do you have an iPhone? What do you have?
Obama: You know, I took my BlackBerry off for this show, because I didn’t want it going off, and that would be really embarrassing. But usually I carry a BlackBerry around.
Ramos: Do you have an iPad? ?Obama: I do have an iPad.
Ramos: Your own [a] computer? ?Obama: I’ve got my own computer. ?Ramos: Very well. (Laughter.)
Obama: I mean, Jorge, I’m the President of the United States. You think I’ve got a — (laughter and applause)—you think I’ve got to go borrow somebody’s computer? (Laughter.) Hey, man, can I borrow your computer? (Laughter.) How about you? You’ve got one?
Any guess what President Obama will own next, will it be iPad 2, Mac, iPhone?
