    My understanding (although basic) is that hardware refers to a physical aspect like a smart phone or tablet etc. Firmware (unless I'm wrong) is a form or software, like an operating system or program.

    Firmware is software that is embedded in a piece of hardware. You can think of firmware simply as "software for hardware."
