5 Signs President Obama is Breaking his BlackBerry Addiction

The media has well documented President Obama’s “addiction” to his BlackBerry, a Verizon Wireless 8830.  However, as the New York Times reported, for security reasons, the president must check his BlackBerry at the oval office door.  This won’t be easy for the new President.  In a recent interview with CNBC and the New York Times, President-Elect Obama noted: “I’m still clinging to my BlackBerry. They’re going to pry it out of my hands.”

With thousands of customers connecting their BlackBerry smartphones to Intermedia’s Exchange Hosting service, we have become experts in BlackBerry addiction.   Our “addiction” experts have analyzed the President and his BlackBerry habit, and have identified the top 5 indicators that will signal President Obama is suffering BlackBerry withdrawal symptoms:
