A mobile communication handset has means for determining the orientation or movement of the handset and a trained signal processor for producing an output representative of the movement. The state of motion or a particular movement of the device can be used to adjust a performance parameter, define an operation of the handset, supply a gestural "password" or raise an alarm in the case of unauthorized use.
