Calling on Obama

Literally. Yep, you can call on Obama, personally. Well, it's actually not the real Obama, it's just a Mi-Obama.
The catch? You have to live in Kenya. Not sure if this little treasure will work in the USA, but if you're an Obama-freak, maybe a Hollywood type, you can probably figure out a way to get one and make it work here.

I wonder if they licensed the logo? Where's the money going if they did? Just curious.

This is marketed in Asia and Africa only. For now. You know that given the way the Obama hysteria is sweeping certain segments of our society (non-Republican ;-), it's not going to be long before we see 'em here whether it's by the Mi group or some other U.S. company. Maybe without the logo.
Don't you think that any company making things for-profit with Obama's name, logo, etc. on them should be donating the money to fight global warming, saving the owls or something? Better yet, maybe they should donate all profits to defray the cost of the bailout and / or the economic recovery plan Obama's wanting to implement.
Let all the rest of us work, make money, spend and do it the good ol' capitalistic American way.

Barack Obama phone launched - not in the US, but in Kenya
The first ever Obama-branded mobile phone is called Mi-Obama and it was recently launched, not in the US, how people would’ve expected, but in Kenya – the country where Obama’s father was born.... http://www.unwiredview.com/2009/01/15/barack-obama-phone-launched-not-in-the-us-but-in-kenya/
