Is this the new Obama phone?

Sectéra Edge

CNN wonders if the Barak Obama’s new phone is the Sectéra® Edge
(love the multiple super-scripts in the product name!) by General Dynamics. Features include a “classified key” that you flip when you want to jump on the Top Sekret network for calls, email, or browsing.

Click on the image above and check out the one-line “trusted display.”  Just the thing to check in on twitter.

Not exactly a svelte device (it’s a little bulkier than a Palm Treo), this thing runs Windows Mobile. Goes with the territory I guess. It’s been reported that the White House PCs are running a six-year old version of Windows.

Oh, and it costs $3,350, without a data plan ;-)

UPDATE: Turns out he’s going to get a real BlackBerry after all.
