My friend YKWIA has requested a retraction/correction

The other day when I was talking about Twitter's new SMS features on cell phones, I used the phrase 'normal phone' to distinguish from 'smart phones'. I should have, of course, said 'normal cell phone'. As he reminded me, a normal phone is what many people now call a landline. I don't think cell phones have taken over landlines completely in terms of 'normalcy'. So, I stand corrected.
