I Can’t Believe Walt Mossberg Is Going Along With Google’s Marketing Line That the Nexus One Is Part of a New Device Category Called ‘Super-Smartphones’

Or “superphones” or whatever. I really like the looks of the Nexus One — clearly the best Android phone to date, and almost certainly the best mobile device in the world next to the iPhone 3GS — but why invent a silly new term on top of the already plenty-vague “smartphone”?

Update: Ends up Mossberg has been using this term for a while. What’s next? Ultra-smartphones? Über-smartphones? Super-duper-smartphones?
