It looks like President Obama has outlasted the Secret Service and will be allowed to keep his beloved BlackBerry 8830 for "personal use" provided that he use the Sectera Edge for official business.
As mentioned last week, the Sectera Edge is a bulky WinMo 6.1 phone that features various security enhancements—a far cry from the sleek lines of the BlackBerry. Perhaps he should celebrate his victory by upgrading to the 8900 or the Bold. I'm sure the folks at RIM would be thrilled. [MobileCrunch via BGR]
