Kenya Hearts Barack With First Obama-Branded Mobile Phone

Mi Fone says yes we can...slap some red-and-blue Barack branding on a mobile phone and sell it in Kenya, home of Papa Obama. And they're selling like the proverbial hot cake.

On the Obamaphone, the head of Mi Phone says:

"The coming of the new President of the USA is an auspicious moment for all Kenyans and the people of Africa. It is our pleasure to be able to launch the Mi-Obama phone as a memento that will always stay within the user's hearts and minds."

Over 1,000 of these brand new pieces are in the streets of Nairobi right now, where they sell for $US30.
