Title (EN) TELEPHONE HAVING A KEYPAD COVER
(FR) TELEPHONE COMPORTANT UN COUVERCLE POUR LE CLAVIER
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A telephone (10) is provided including (a) a housing (14) defining an ear piece (16), a microphone opening (20) and a keypad (18), (b) a flip cover (22) constructed to cover a portion of the housing (14), the flip cover (22) being rotatably mounted on the housing (14) to pivot between a closed position and an open position, and (c) a hinge assembly (24) providing the rotatable mounting of the flip cover on the housing. The hinge assembly (24) includes a hinge member (34) retained within the housing, and a pair of hinge pins (38) rotatably engaged at opposite ends of the hinge member and extending outwardly from the housing through apertures in the housing. The hinge pins are received by pin-receiving portions (45) of the flip cover, and the pin-receiving portions are constructed so that rotation of the flip cover between the open and closed positions rotates the hinge pins. The housing includes a portion (39-41) constructed to cause said flip cover to disengage from said housing, without damage to said flip cover, when said flip cover is rotated beyond its normal open position.
(FR)L'invention concerne un téléphone comprenant a) un boîtier définissant un écouteur, un orifice de microphone et un clavier; b) un couvercle rabattable, conçu pour recouvrir une partie du boîtier et monté rotatif sur ce dernier de façon à pivoter entre une position fermée et une position ouverte; et c) un ensemble charnière assurant le montage rotatif du couvercle sur le boîtier. L'ensemble charnière comprend un élément charnière, retenu à l'intérieur du boîtier, et une paire d'axes de charnière, montés rotatifs aux extrémités opposées de l'élément charnière et faisant protrusion à l'extérieur du boîtier à travers des ouvertures pratiquées dans celui-ci. Les axes de charnière sont logés dans les parties réceptrices d'axes du couvercle, qui sont configurées de façon que la rotation de ce dernier entre la position ouverte et la position fermée fasse tourner lesdits axes. Le boîtier comporte une partie configurée de façon que le couvercle se désolidarise du boîtier sans s'abîmer quand sa rotation l'amène au-delà de sa position ouverte normale.
