Barack Obama may be the most powerful man in the world, but his smartphone game is in need of repair. In fact, the smartphone you currently have in your pocket is probably more advanced than the one he’s using. During an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon yesterday, Obama said that while he has a smartphone of sorts, its functionality is extremely limited due to security concerns.
So while we’re all busy tweeting, texting, taking photos and more, Obama remains stuck on the sidelines. In an amusing anecdote, Obama recalled the conversation that accompanied him receiving his new phone, with his handlers saying “this is a great phone, state of the art, but it doesn’t take pictures, you can’t text, the phone doesn’t work, and you can’t play your music on it.”
