An article on NetworkWorld points out an interview with President of the United States of America, Barack Obama, where he admits receiving an Apple iPad 2 before it was released to the public. Not only did he get the iPad 2 early, but he received it directly from Steve Jobs himself.

President Obama tells ABC’s George Stephanopoulous:

Steve Jobs actually gave it to me, a little bit early. Yeah, it was cool. I got it directly from him.

It’s important to note that the President of the United States of America called this “Cool”.

Here’s the video of quote:

We have to also wonder what other products President Barack Obama might have. Perhaps the iPhone 5 or 4S? Perhaps a full blown Apple standalone Television in the Oval Office? It’s good to be the President.

As we know, the iPad 2 was released on March 11, 2011 and the photo below was shot during a dinner including the brightest tech minds such as then Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs, Google’s then CEO Eric Schmidt, and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Now we can add President Barack Obama to that list.

We wonder how Barack Obama is liking iOS5 so far and if he has given his Presidential feedback and bug reporting.

Change, indeed.
