Title
(EN) GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACE FOR A WIRELESS COMMUNICATION DEVICE
(FR) INTERFACE GRAPHIQUE UTILISATEUR DESTINEE A UN DISPOSITIF DE TELECOMMUNICATION SANS FIL
Abstract
(EN)
A wireless communications device (106) uses graphic image data to simplify the calling process. The user may enter desired destination telephone numbers (168, 170, 172) that are associated with a selected graphic image (160, 162, 164). The user may subsequently recall the desired destination telephone number simply by selecting the associated graphic image. The system may include scroll buttons (120) to position the desired graphic image in a predetermined position or may include a touch-sensitive screen (124) so that the user may initiate a phone call simply by pressing the desired portion of the touch-sensitive screen. In addition, a call history profile is maintained using destination telephone numbers and associated graphic images. The graphic images can be represented in different manners to indicate the frequency with which the associated telephone number has been called or to indicate the chronological sequence in which telephone numbers have been called. In addition, the system may include an input interface to allow the user to download graphic images from an external source, such as a computer. The downloaded images may include digitized photographs so that the associated graphic image will be readily recognizable to the user.
(FR)
Dans ce dispositif de télécommunications sans fil (106) on utilise des données graphiques du type images pour simplifier le processus d'appel. L'utilisateur peut entrer des numéros téléphoniques de destinataires voulus (168, 170, 172), ces numéros étant associés à une image graphique choisie (160, 162, 164). L'utilisateur peut ultérieurement rappeler le numéro téléphonique du destinataire voulu, simplement par sélection de l'image graphique associée. Ce système peut comporter des touches de défilement (120), afin de placer l'image graphique voulue dans une position déterminée, ou il peut comporter un écran tactile (124) de façon que l'utilisateur puisse établir un appel téléphonique par simple pression sur la portion voulue de l'écran tactile. En outre, ce dispositif conserve un profil de l'historique des appels, au moyen des numéros de téléphone appelés et des images graphiques associées. Ces images peuvent être représentées de diverses manières afin d'indiquer la fréquence d'appel dudit numéro de téléphone associé, ou d'indiquer la séquence chronologique d'appel des numéros téléphoniques. Par ailleurs, ce système peut comprendre une interface d'entrée, afin de permettre à l'utilisateur de télécharger des images graphiques à partir d'une source extérieure, telle qu'un ordinateur. Les images téléchargées peuvent comporter des photographies numérisées, de façon que l'utilisateur puisse facilement reconnaître l'image graphique associée.
