In the past, Where were portable devices. For examples pager, MP3 player, game consoles. There were very simple and had just one function.

Over time, It has evolved in a better direction. Pagers turned into cell phones, also MP3 players to PMPs(Portable Media Players)[2].
These days, one mobile device has multiple functions and tasks. For examples Smart phones can surf the internet, call, send SMS messages, etc.[3]
