Obama, however, couldn't get it to work, Mashable reports.

According to Politico, Obama looked 'befuddled,' while using the Apple device.

'Oh, I got to dial it in. Hold on, hold on. I can do this. See, I still have a BlackBerry,' Obama said.

According to a Washington Times blog, Obama, in turn, jokingly blamed Nicholson for having an insufficient cell phone plan.
