Smart phones

In my pocket, I own a device that has the ability to do more things thought possible today. Aside from the simple calling and texting. This device can also surf the internet and handle most websites with ease. It can also download a vast array of applications from simple (like a lightsaber app) or more complex (Live tracking of stocks). We can also download games that are slowly but surely becoming as in depth as some of the handheld games. Yet we still consider these devices “phones”

 

Now many of you may use the calling feature on these portable communication devices, but that for many people is no longer the primary function of a phone anymore. Instead we text, or update our statues  via twitter or facebook. I don’t consider it to be a bad thing per say, I’m not much of a social media person, but I can apprecate the concept of posting what you do every fifteen minutes to your friends and family.

 

Those things aside, I wonder is it wise to continue to call our smart phones “phones”? I think communication device is a good step in the right direction, however I think there are better options.
