What happened to the Obama iPhone? We recently uncovered two revealing photos taken on October 25, during Barack Obama's stop in Las Vegas. The photos show what appears to be a Motorola Razor in Obama's hand during two separate phone calls.
After much effort, our team realized that spotting Barack Obama using an iPhone may be harder to capture than a photo of Bigfoot in the wild. We reviewed over 1,200 hundred photographs since early June, unsuccessful in confirming Obama using his fabled iPhone.
Back in May of this year a video clip of Barack Obama was circulated with the accompanying banter that Obama had given up using his Blackberry in favor of using Apple's wildly popular iPhone. The iPhone story was helped along by a post on Geeksugar.com and then humorously goosed by the infamous Fake Steve Jobs.
After the free "Obama '08" iPhone app was officially released in late September, all doubts seemed to be erased from the minds of Mac faithful that Obama was anything but a committed iPhone fanatic. The lack of photos showing Obama using an iPhone or any other mobile device during his public appearances started to look like a deliberate strategy orchestrated by his handlers.
Did Barack Obama truly join the cult of iPhone faithful? Or was that only a rumor allowed to prevail because it supported the Obama iPhone apps and change message of the Obama/Biden campaign? These pictures may only reveal one side of the story. For now though, it's the only side we have.
