Telecommunications: As American soldiers die, Bush indulges in product endorsement for cell phones

George Bush likes Samsung cell phones.

During his recent overseas trip he visited the Samsung Electronics booth at the APEC IT exhibition. According to the company, he paid special attention to a slim third-generation phone as well as the Serene model phone jointly produced by Samsung and Bang & Olufsen. He even "hammed it up" by asking to be put through to the Whitehouse.

According to, Samsung reported that Bush exclaimed, "Samsung is excellent". He said he had known the company well because of its support from the time he served as Texas governor.
