Steve Jobs gave Barack Obama an iPad 2 early

Well it seems that being in power does have quite a few perks. This time it’s getting the latest tech before anyone else, and we’ve learned that President Obama received an iPad 2 from Steve Jobs before it was released.

The hand over most likely took place at the infamous dinner back in February where Obama, Google’s Eric Schmidt and Mark Zuckerberg were also present.

It’s thought that Steve Jobs handed over the, at the time unreleased, device afterwards.

So, we wonder whether Obama has managed to get his hands on an iPhone 4S from new Apple CEO Tim Cook?
