Handy is just a usual mobile phone, a word everybody is using Comment by: mazz   
then how is "handy" said (pronounced) in germany? Comment by: asfdsafdsf    Rated:3/5
It's pronounced just like it's pronounced in english, since it IS the english word, just with a different meaning. Many german people are surprised when they learn that it's not called handy in us / uk. ;) Oh and the "Pelefon" there is wrong and should be "Telefon", but "Mobiltelefon" is better in this case.

It's pronounced Hendi, since the A sound in the English word HANDY is not part of the phonotactics of German. Comment by: Billy   
Your retarded yes it is Comment by: Lukas Neuhardt
