Jeff Zeleny writes in the New York Times: "For more than two months, Mr. Obama has been waging a vigorous battle with his handlers to keep his BlackBerry, which like millions of other Americans he has relied upon for years to stay connected with friends and advisers. (And, of course, to get Chicago White Sox scores.)

"He won the fight, aides disclosed Thursday, but the privilege of becoming the nation's first e-mailing president comes with a specific set of rules."

Michael D. Shear writes in The Washington Post: "In Washington D.C., nothing will be harder to win a spot on than the list of e-mail addresses allowed to arrive, unimpeded, to President Obama's BlackBerry."
