Apple iPhone 'befuddles' Blackberry-savvy Obama

President Barack Obama, who has been commended for his use of a strong digital campaign for re-election, apparently has problems in using Apple devices.

During a campaign trip to Florida on Sunday, Obama wanted to personally call and thank two particular volunteers for a job well done.

White House trip director Marvin Nicholson passed the President an iPhone to make the call.

Obama, however, couldn't get it to work, Mashable reports.

According to Politico, Obama looked 'befuddled,' while using the Apple device.

"Oh, I got to dial it in. Hold on, hold on. I can do this. See, I still have a BlackBerry," Obama said.

According to a Washington Times blog, Obama, in turn, jokingly blamed Nicholson for having an insufficient cell phone plan.
