To improve usability for those of us with sensory or physical limitations, phones and tablets have features for accessibility, which are continually improving and becoming more prevalent as technologies advance.
A mobile device is a small computing device, typically small enough to be handheld (and hence also commonly known as a handheld computer or simply handheld) having a display screen with touch input and/or a miniature keyboard and weighing less than 2 pounds (0.91 kg). Samsung, Sony, HTC, LG, Motorola Mobility and Apple are just a few examples of the many manufacturers that produce these types of devices.
Computers that can be powered with batteries and thus can be used anywhere; Included are, e.g., computers in combination with mobile phones such as smartphones.
