Then a day or two ago, I encountered an interesting alternative: "persophone". It seems to be used (on AlGore and the Ythm's Internet) more than ten times more often than "selfphone" is. It is a syllable longer and doesn't play phonetically with "cell phone", but if tip comes to tip ("tipping point" revision of "push comes to shove"), I suppose I could adopt it.
The search results on the basis of which the claim that persophone was used much more often than selfphone were based:
Persophone: 6 360 réponses
selfphone: 252 réponses
Persophone: 13,600 (Did you mean persephone)
selfphone: 1200 (Did you mean self phone)
Identificateurs Technorati : selfphone, creativity, competition, tipping point, language, words
