Many people still refer to today's portable handheld radios as walkie-talkies...a walkie talkie became the nick-name for a portable two-way transceiver (transmitter and receiver = transceiver) radio...and like cell phones, have shrunk in size with technological advances. Regardless of their size and power, the application is the same, so I don't understand the issue with the walkie-talkie reference. If I asked you to borrow your cell phone, I wouldn't expect you to hand me an old analog brick unit. Radios can be very useful, especially when using proper radio discipline.

Thank you for putting this out. I totally forgot about radios. I consider myself well versed in radios and communication, and if there is one paramount thing of the field, its communication.

All of the above are radio transceivers.
A true walkie talkie is a backpack radio. This differentiates it from a basestation or vehicle carried radio system

A handheld is actually a 'handie talkie', but this was trademarked by motorola and dates back to the original handheld military radio transceivers - which in the 50s were predicted to become private mobile phones (or cell phones in the US)

Mobile phones / cell phones are radio transceivers as well

A little tip for games is that you can use your phone for comma as well. This is dependant on you being willing to use it in games and getting a signal. But they still work when too much radio chatter is blocking your ability to get the message out, and when you need to avoid your messages being eavesdropped on
