Tag Archives: cell phone

Why do the English call it by what it does but the Americans call it by what it is?

We’re talking about a phone.
In the U.K. we call the object that you carry with you everywhere, couldn’t live without a “mobile phone” and yet in America they call it a “Cell”.
On one hand it’ referred to by what it does and on the other it’s referred to by what it is! At this point we could go into a diatribe of the difference between the countries but that’s not my intention. On the contrary my point is “ipad-ivity”. I’ll get to that in a minute.
