And he probably didn't have to wait in line to get it
"I took my BlackBerry off for this show, because I didn't want it going off, and that would be really embarrassing," Obama said at a town hall meeting hosted by Spanish-language network Univision (the network will broadcast the town hall on Monday night). "But usually I carry a BlackBerry around," Obama told anchor Jorge Ramos, referring to Research In Motion Ltd.'s smartphone.
"Do you have an iPad?" asked Ramos next.
"I do have an iPad," Obama replied, joking later about also having his own computer.
"I mean, Jorge, I'm the president of the United States," Obama said. "You think I've got to go borrow somebody's computer?" said Obama to laughter. "Hey, man, can I borrow your computer? How about you? You've got one?"
Apparently nobody thought to ask which iPad he owned or whether it was a gift from Apple (AAPL).
