Abstract: front page image
(EN)

In accordance with an example embodiment of the present invention, a method is provided for transferring information items between communications devices. A source device detects a selection input by an input object. Direction of movement of the input object is detected after the selection input. A target device is identified on the basis of the direction of movement of the input object. The target device is connected for transferring an information item associated with the selection input.
