a poŝtelefonon is definitely a pocket telephone, especially when compared to a very big phone. a cell phone or mobile phone is characteristically different from a landline phone because of the way it transmits and receives signals, has nothing to do with size.

Saluton! Yeah, you're right... but does it really matter? I'd say it's a phrase good as any for duolingo.

Good luck with the course!
