Steve Jobs gave Russian President Dmitry Medvedev a gift of a new iPhone 4 during his visit to Apple headquarters in Cupertino, California.

Medvedev became the first Russian to get the handset that thousands are desperately trying purchase today.

According to the Russian mobile operator Beeline, the brand new device may appear on the Russian market no earlier than September.

During his speech at Stanford University, Medvedev read from an Apple iPad and said, "I wanted to see with my own eyes the origin of success. I'm inspired with what I saw here in Silicon Valley and at Stanford. In a very good way, I am kind of jealous of all you here."
