Abstract
(EN)
The present invention concerns a method, a program product and a hand-held device for managing separate collections of information and/or functions with said device. In the invention, user actions with the input device are logically tied to motions on the display. Said collections are preferably organized to a linear stack, the collection order remaining the same all the time. When a user moves, e.g. his/her finger horizontally (along x-axis) on the touch pad, the collection on the display is changed from one to another depending on the direction of the user finger movement. Correspondingly, when a user moves his/her finger vertically (along y-axis) on the touch pad, the collection on the display is scrolled vertically down/up depending on the direction of the user finger movement. While moving within one collection, the operating mode is changed to second operating mode when one collection and/or function is selected.

(FR)
La présente invention concerne un procédé, un produit programme et un dispositif portable permettant de gérer des collections séparées d'informations et/ou de fonctions à l'aide dudit dispositif. Selon l'invention, des actions utilisateurs effectuées à l'aide du dispositif d'entrée sont logiquement liées aux mouvements sur l'écran. Lesdites collections sont de préférence organisées en un empilement linéaire, l'ordre de la collection reste inchangé. Par exemple, lorsqu'un utilisateur déplace son doigt horizontalement (le long de l'axe x) sur le clavier tactile, la collection présente à l'écran est modifiée en fonction de la direction du mouvement de doigt de l'utilisateur. En conséquence, lorsqu'un utilisateur déplace son doigt verticalement (le long de l'axe y) sur le clavier tactile, la collection présente à l'écran défile verticalement vers le bas/haut en fonction de la direction du mouvement de doigt de l'utilisateur. Tout en se déplaçant dans une collection, le mode de travail est modifié en un second mode de travail lorsqu'une collection et/ou fonction est sélectionnée.
