I usually hear Spanish speakers refer to "tele" (no accent) shortened for "televisión" (television). I've never heard it shortened as "telé" for "teléfono" (telephone). They'll say the whole word or say "la célula" (cell phone) or sometimes "móvil" (work cell phone/walkie-talkie).

Many of my friends are native speakers and I have never heard them use "tele".

Thanks guys. I just had the feeling that there were other, preferably shorter, words used for this.

My wife is a native speaker. I asked her what she would say, she would say "telefono cellular" or just "cellular".
