    The leader of the free world just may get to keep his beloved BlackBerry.

    A report posted on the Internet Wednesday evening by Atlantic Magazine's Marc Ambinder cited an unnamed source as saying that President Obama was being given a super-encrypted version of the popular e-mailing smartphone.

    It wasn't clear whether Obama's personal BlackBerry was being upgraded, or if he was getting an entirely new unit.

    A call made by FoxNews.com to the Obama transition team -- a White House phone number did not pick up -- was not immediately returned.

    All presidential e-mails are subject to disclosure laws, and it's nearly impossible to make any Internet-connected device or cell phone absolutely safe from hackers or spies.

    Former President George W. Bush regretfully sent out a final e-mail to friends and family as he took office eight years ago. It's not clear whether he's able to use e-mail again now that he's a private citizen again.

    But White House aides routinely carry BlackBerrys, which are presumably highly encrypted for security reasons.

    Our news said the Blackberry Storm...

    This would make sense because Obama has had past history with Verizon. But I wouldn't know why he would go through them since employees were caught viewing his private account. Verizon dealt with the issue well.
