'Obamarama': Cell phone

Thanks to alert reader Ashok Hariharan for sending in this Obamarama image: the Obama cell phone.


Apparently this phone was on sale in Nairobi on Inauguration Day, although I haven't seen anyone using one. At less than $40 the price isn't bad -- and hey, it's got an FM radio too.

By the way, New Yorker writer Steve Coll is noticing a proliferation of Obama wallpapers/screensavers in Nigeria as well.

Please email me your random Obama images.
