THE LIGHTER SIDE: Former US presidential candidate wants to ‘rename the cell phone’

In a video on his official YouTube channel, the one-time Republican congressman likens calling the modern mobile phone a ‘cell phone’ is akin to calling a car a horseless carriage.

Gingrich admits he used to call his cell phone a handheld computer, but believes that doesn’t encapsulate the full network connectivity of the device.

The former speaker then asks his viewers for their suggestion for renaming the device – perhaps the term ‘smartphone’ might be a good suggestion?
