A sidebar to the new President taking office was the effort by the Secret Service to develop a BlackBerry that was super-secure. The device may prove secure or not. But the White House has clamped down on others who could have access to the President’s smartphone. The limited number of people getting the number must sign statements to protect their access including not commenting on even if they do have access.
Interesting enough there are BlackBerries already aimed at law enforcement and private security.
