"If people haven't started thinking about the current crop of
smartphones as computers, maybe this will help: Quake III Arena
(Q3A) ported to the Android platform. If a device can run a custom
port of Id Software's legendary first person shooter, surely it
qualifies as a computer more than a phone.
"That might sound silly, but think about it: When Quake III
Arena was initially introduced, it took massive (at the time)
processing power and a beefy (at the time) video card to run. We're
now at the point where the computer in my pocket can run the
greatest game of all time. The fact that smartphones also make
phone calls is almost incidental. Phone calls are handled by just
one program of many on the device."
