Microsoft offers President Obama a WP7 device

It seems Microsoft will do anything to get Windows Phone 7 devices in the hands of everyone who desire "cool" and "hip" products, like the president of the United States -- Mr. Barack Obama. In a recent report published by Fox News (interestingly enough), it seems the president is tired of old and boring technology, he demands new fancy buttons and big screens!

The Oval Office, I always thought I was going to have really cool phones and stuff. I'm like, c'mon guys, I'm the president of the United States. Where's the fancy buttons and stuff and the big screen comes up? It doesn't happen.

Microsoft took this opportunity to (amusingly) offer the president a free WP7 device, as shown in the image above. I'm guessing an official White House app would have to be developed in-house? Control the world with the power of pivots, the world will be powered by Windows - Microsoft's dream.

haha, I don't think IT would let him ditch the security of his BlackBerry, but it'd be cool if he did switch.

Don't give him a Focus, AT&T would just piss him off too.

piaqt says:

Then maybe some REAL pressure would get AT&T to release NoDo.

The US government controls the world? What an amusing notion. I'm sure North Korea and Iran would take exception to that statement.

Good publicity stunt. I love it. But he can't have a WP7, due to security reason. I'd be nice if they had some type of new Zune to give him. Unlimited music is the greatest.

Let us know if he said anything about the phone.

alukard says:

shame he has to wait till fall for higher level functions.
