U.S. President Barack Obama recently revealed that one of the perks of his job includes having received his iPad directly from Steve Jobs himself before the product's official release.
"Steve Jobs actually gave it to me a little bit early," Politico quotedObama as telling ABC News.
"It was cool. I got it directly from him," he added.
Jobs is believed to have presented Obama, a self-professed fan of Research in Motion's BlackBerry phones, with the device at a dinner in San Francisco in February, just two weeks before the unveiling of the iPad 2 in early March.
The dinner included several other prominent Silicon Valley executives, such as Google's Eric Schmidt, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Oracle's Larry Ellison.
In late March, Obama revealed in an interview that he owned an iPad and had tethered it to his BlackBerry smartphone. (ANI)
