    Merkel's mobile

    GERMAN Chancellor Angela Merkel is an avid user of her mobile phone, which is why she is also known as "die Handy-Kanzlerin", or "Mobile Chancellor".

    In March this year, Dr Merkel was given a Secusmart BlackBerry, which the company then advertised as the "Chancellor Phone", The Guardian reported.

    The phone allows politicians to conduct private chats, confidential conversations and high-security data transfers without having to switch phones.
