The real name is KATAME WAZA which mean control.
KANSETSU or OSAE WAZA is aplaying joint lock position.
Well, if you want to get pedantic, Osae-waza means a restraining or controlling technique, Kansetsu-waza means a joint lock, and Katame-waza means a ground technique or a grappling technique.

In answer to your question, I don't think O-sensei was worried about his mobile phone when he was developing aikido. Otherwise, I agree with Carsten.
