Abstract
(EN)
An improved mobile telephone handset (10) and multiple-function user interface (18) is provided which allows true one-handed operation of the handset (10). The user interface (34) includes a display (30) for presenting a plurality of individual user function labels (36) and a movable indicator (38); a user control (34) is also provided and is operably coupled with the display (3) for selective movement of the indicator (38) to a desired function label (36), whereupon the corresponding function may be initiated. The control (34) may include a rotatable track ball (40) and depressible keys (42, 44) located on opposite sidewalls of the handset housing (12). The interface also includes fixed label DTMF signaling keys (32).
(FR)
L'invention concerne un combiné téléphonique mobile amélioré (10) et une interface utilisateur à fonctions multiples (18), qui permet véritablement de manipuler le combiné (10) d'une seule main. L'interface utilisateur (34) comprend un dispositif d'affichage (30) qui permet d'afficher une pluralité d'étiquettes de fonctions utilisateur (36), et un indicateur mobile (38). Une commande utilisateur (34) est fonctionnellement couplée au dispositif d'affichage (3), de façon à permettre le déplacement sélectif de l'indicateur (38) vers une étiquette de fonction désirée, après quoi il est possible de lancer la fonction correspondante. La commande (34) peut comprendre une boule roulante rotative (40) et des touches pouvant être enfoncées (42, 44), placées sur les parois opposées du boîtier du combiné (12). L'interface comporte également des touches de signalisation de double tonalité multifréquence (32) à étiquetage fixe.
