"phone" is a misnomer since they are actually hand held devices which have many, many capabilities other than just a phone. They are small computers now. We used to have "cell phones"; now we have "hand held devices" ....

Hand held devices generally cover tablets some of which can be used as phones, but not all while phones can perform the same function and more. Reference the iPhone compared to the iTouch for example. The iTouch is only a hand held device and the iPhone is both.
