They certainly can. They are also extremely expensive and extremely rare compared to cellphones that can be bought at Walmart for $15. Only an idiot would use a satellite phone as a daily phone unless they live in the mountains, the desert, antarctica   or some other distant location far away from civilization  without cellphone towers or perhaps they are a spy or have some other specialized usage. The nit pickers are out in full force today. 
You aren't missing anything. I hold my iPhone with one hand while calling or for very short bursts like looking at a text or checking something quickly but if I use it for more than a minute I tend to naturally gravitate to two handed use as do most people I have observed. People like to mock anecdotal evidence here but I think Apple have already realized this trend as well which is why they plan to do something about it. 
Are you purposely trying to be obtuse? Exactly what term could I have possibly used would satisfy you to the point where there no room for pedantic nit picking hissyfits. Did I need to list and exclude every single type of VoiP including CUseeMe that might run on some emulator? I also left out Google Voice, Yahoo messenger and probably dozens more. How about this, cellular voice calls that use SID and MTSO. Clear now? http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/cell-phone3.htm
Good luck calling 911 from your iPad if you had a car accident away from wifi. In any event you are a bit late to the party since this was all clarified several posts above. 
50% of the world are women that tend to use purses to carry their phones. It really wouldn't be that hard to carry a 5.6" iPhone in a purse. And men also seem to manage with the Note III so I am not sure if your criticism is valid for men either. In any event if Apple were to offer such an iPhone it is doubtful they would discontinue a smaller version so it would not effect you. Choice is a good thing. 
I have been called a lot of things but never undeveloped. So hats off for at least an original thought for once.  In your black or white universe I suspect there are a lot of "undeveloped" people who see things a bit more grey which is an anthema to you.There can only be your view of how Apple should be perceived and the wrong way which is to say anyone's else views.  Perhaps if you could learn not to be so confrontational, or sarcastic and stop using the ¡ symbol on...
If I had meant to include VoiP, Skype, FaceTime, or other types of calls I would have included that. It is pretty much understood when you are talking about voice calls you mean cellular using towers which neither iPod touch nor iPad can do. Do I real need to define a phone and voice calls?
 You forgot the "go away" part. I see you are making all sorts of friends at 9to5 as well. 
 Neither  iPod Touch nor iPad cannot make standard voice calls using towers. I am not talking about VoiP, Skype, FaceTime, etc.that allow calls over WiFi or require an additional data plan. Perhaps you got confused since you don't have a modern or activated iPhone with an actual carrier. Do you have any phone at all capable of making calls not on wifi? Your  "iPhone" is an antique 1st gen  that can't even go beyond iOS 3 which is pretty much next to useless, you claim to...
Multitasking is definitely a feature I would use and appreciate on an iPad.That is certainly something I would love to see come to iOS.
