WSJ: White House testing BlackBerry rivals

|About: BlackBerry Ltd. (BB)|By:, SA News Editor

Could President Obama one day give up his BlackBerry (BBRY) addiction?

The White House is testing Samsung (SSNLF) and LG Electronics (LGEAF) smartphones in a development that could threaten one of BlackBerry's last and most high-profile strongholds, the WSJ reports.

Still, the testing is at an early stage and any use of Samsung or LG handsets is still "months away," while there's no indication - yet - that Obama will switch phones.

Apple's iPhone is not being assessed.
