English term or phrase: handheld device
What would be the best translation? Microsoft, as far as I could find, was not conclusive. They use "de mão".

dispositivo manual
Explanation:
Now, acc. to most recent Approved glossary from Microsoft, it's 'dispositivo manual'. I prefer 'dispositivo de mão', indeed. Another: 'PC de mão', in case it is a computer with WinCE or similar.
