US President Barack Obama has admitted that he had received the unreleased iPad2 "directly from" Steve Jobs. In an interview with George Stephanopoulous of ABC News (via), Obama told: “Steve Jobs actually gave it to me, a little bit early. Yeah, it was cool. I got it directly from him.”
It is to be noted, Obama met tech executives in Whitehouse in February of this year and iPad2 was released the following month. With the events, the ‘a little bit early’ can be safely assumed to be ‘about a month,’ to be exact.
In the following photo, released by White House, Jobs is seen sitting next to Obama:
In another photo released by White House, Obama is seen with an Apple iPad 2 clutched in his hand:
Although there is no account of recent meeting of Jobs and Obama, some are wondering: how long has Obama been using the unreleased (to be released today) iPhone 5.
