Thanks to the White House press corps, we might have found the most high-profile person who still has a BlackBerry: Barack Obama.  

The tip comes from the Detroit News’ David Shepardson, who filed this pool report earlier today:  

“Before departure, President Obama walked alone along Colonnade at 10:18 a.m. before heading back into the White House. A coatless POTUS walked to Marine One at 10:31 a.m. in near freezing 33 degree F weather checking his watch and waiving to reporters before getting aboard. Almost immediately, he got off helicopter — as his aides were headed across lawn to Marine One. POTUS went back into the White House through the Diplomatic Room doors telling reporters: ‘I forgot something.’  

“After returning, he said: ‘Didn’t you guys ever forget something?’ After some shouted questions asking what he forgotten, he held up his his phone. ‘My BlackBerry’ he said as he returned to Marine One.”  

As a friend of HOH said, someone get this man an iPhone.
