I thought it was kind of funny and for a second I didn't really think about it. I guess because I still call my phone a cell phone :dontknow:

I think a straightforard "mobile" makes sense. Phone being a major part of the name seems less important now because honestly calling is probably less than 5% of what I actually use my phone for.

You can use your phone for that? Lol I thought it was only for texts and internet.:)

Or reviewing documents before meetings...
Or taking pictures...
Or reading books...
Or making calls over WiFi when not on the Cell network...
Or listening to or recording music...
Or watching movies with Angelina Jolie movies...
Or making restaurant reservations...

Has anyone remixed Newt yet? I'd watch that on my portable handheld computing/communicating/photographing/reading/writing/reviewing electronic whizbang device.

/submitting that as the new name for those "smartphone" things everyone's talking about
