Somewhere in the bowels of the Kremlin, a Russian president tweets his dismay.
His Excellency President Dmitri Medvedev scored a Samsung Galaxy Tab on a recent visit to South Korea and has apparently used it for some amateur photo-taking. Judging by the evidence that has surfaced, a snow covered bunch of trees caught his inner artist’s eye, compelling him to capture the bleak winter scene’s raw emotion. The result? Mr. Un-smiley face right there on a tweet. (See the pic above.)
Medvedev, known to be the chummier half of the strange partnership he has with Vladimir Putin, who is widely believed to be the true Big Boss in today’s Russia, has a taste for gadgets and rock music. He’s the urbane opposite of bare-chested Putin who shoots tigers with tranquilizer guns and stomps on Georgia in his past time. In fact, Medvedev is known to have an affinity for a Leica M9, which probably explains his disappointment at the kind of photography Samsung’s GT-P1000 camera affords him.
Funny, but not since uh, well not since forever has a Russian leader been so in touch with the times that he bothers to tweet such mundane happenings as the poor quality of a Galaxy Tab photo. But at least we know it’s winter in Russia.
