Do you have one?

"MOVE over, iPhone; the latest must-have gadget for international men of mystery is the BarackBerry. The president of the United States is to become the proud owner of a secure, souped-up, high-tech personal digital assistant (PDA). It comes fully loaded with encryption devised by the National Security Agency (NSA), which gathers intelligence from cyberspace. The buzz about Obama’s BlackBerry replacement is “almost as exciting as the presidential dog”, reported Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary, this weekend. There is speculation that the e-mailer-in-chief will carry a Sectera Edge, made by General Dynamics, the military contractor, and developed specially for the NSA. At the touch of a button it can switch from an ordinary PDA to a secure communications device."

Sounds like a great gadget ... or just a President's boy toy?
