That is right.

On the other hand, why do a smartphone actually makes phone calls? The main reason for this that I see is that in order to have wireless internet, you need a phone contract anyway. There are very few data-only contracts offered in the whole world. Without that constraint, we may have seen a cleaner division between phones (sturdy, reliable but limited in functionality) and "communication devices" (which are now exclusively tablets, but could have been improved PDA).
