Obama to Keep His BlackBerry

Reports cite high-end encryption software

It appears President Obama gets to keep his BlackBerry after all.

Several accounts report that a package of some $3,200 worth of encryption software is being added to his device.

According to Marc Ambinder’s blog from the Atlantic, his messages, like other White House communications, will kept from the public for the duration of his presidency, and perhaps longer.

Due to security concerns, however, Obama and his aides will not be able to use instant-messaging.
