(EN) MULTI-FUNCTIONAL HAND-HELD DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF PORTATIF MULTI-FONCTIONS
Abstract
(EN)
Disclosed herein is a multi-functional hand-held device capable of configuring user inputs based on how the device is to be used. Preferably, the multifunctional hand-held device has at most only a few physical buttons, keys, or switches so that its display size can be substantially increased. The multifunctional hand-held device also incorporates a variety of input mechanisms, including touch sensitive screens, touch sensitive housings, display actuators, audio input, etc. The device also incorporates a user-configurable GUI for each of the multiple functions of the devices.

L’invention concerne un dispositif portatif multi-fonctions capable de configurer des données utilisateur basées sur la façon dont le dispositif doit être utilisé. Le dispositif portatif multi-fonctions possède de préférence au maximum quelques boutons, touches ou commutateurs physiques, afin que la taille de son écran soit fortement augmentée. Le dispositif portatif multi-fonctions comprend également un grand nombre de mécanismes d’entrée de données, parmi lesquels des écrans tactiles, des boîtiers tactiles, des actionneurs d’écran, une entrée audio, etc. Le dispositif comprend également une interface graphique utilisateur (GUI) configurable par l’utilisateur pour chacune des diverses fonctions du dispositif.
