I just saw This question which uses and

now to me both are the same because a mobile is a phone but that's just me (because i still use my smart phone as exactly that, a phone). so i am wondering in terms of usage what is the difference between these 2 tags? if they are just the same thing then i would like to suggest aliasing one.

This is a different thing from the modern Windows Phone operating systems or the upcoming Windows 10 Mobile operating system.
