(57) Abstract:
(EN): The purpose of the present invention is to provide an electronic device comprising a glass keyboard which retains the texture of hardware keyboards and has an attractive appearance. The electronic device comprises: a display housing comprising a display unit for displaying information; and an input housing joined to the display housing and comprising a touchscreen display unit for displaying a software keyboard. The software keyboard has a plurality of key regions for accepting input information from a user and non-key regions surrounding the key regions. One of either the key regions or the non-key regions are glass members, the other is made of a material different from that of the glass members, and the key regions and non-key regions are bonded together.
(FR): Le but de la présente invention est de fournir un dispositif électronique comprenant un clavier en verre qui conserve la texture de claviers matériels et qui a un aspect attractif. Le dispositif électronique comprend : un boîtier d'affichage comprenant une unité d'affichage pour afficher des informations ; et un boîtier d'entrée relié au boîtier d'affichage et comprenant une unité d'affichage à écran tactile pour afficher un clavier logiciel. Le clavier logiciel comporte une pluralité de régions de touches pour accepter des informations d'entrée provenant d'un utilisateur et des régions de non-touche entourant les régions de touches. L'une des régions de touches et des régions de non-touche sont des éléments en verre, l'autre est constituée d'un matériau différent de celui des éléments en verre, et les régions de touche et les régions de non-touche sont liées les unes aux autres.
(JA): ハードウェアキーボードの質感を残し、外観に優れたガラスキーボードを備えた電子デバイスを提供することを目的とする。 電子デバイスは、情報を表示するための表示ユニットを有する表示用筐体と、前記表示用筐体と連結され、ソフトウェアキーボードを表示するタッチスクリーン表示ユニットを有する入力用筐体と、を備え、前記キーボードは、使用者からの入力情報を受け付ける複数のキー領域と前記キー領域を取り囲む非キー領域とを有し、前記キー領域および前記非キー領域のいずれか一方はガラス部材であり、もう一方は前記ガラス部材とは異なる材料からなり、前記キー領域と前記非キー領域とが接合されている。
