Abstract: front page image
(EN)A portable device (2) is disclosed which comprises a body (4), a cover (6) and a key (36). The cover (6) has a closed position for at least partially covering the body, and the key is accessible when the cover is in this position. When the cover is in an open position, the key has no function, whereas when the cover is in the closed position, the functionality of the key changes depending upon the state of the device. One such function is the muting of an audible indicator provided by a speaker (38) or the like of the device. This may occur, for example, if the key is actuated when the device is a phone and has received an incoming call or if it has an alarm.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif (2) portatif qui comporte un corps (4), un couvercle (6) et une touche (36). Le couvercle (6) en position fermée sert à couvrir au moins partiellement le corps, et la touche est accessible quand le couvercle se trouve dans cette position. Quand le couvercle est en position ouverte, la touche n'a pas de fonction; mais quand le couvercle est en position fermée, la fonctionnalité de la touche change en fonction de l'état du dispositif. L'une de ces fonctions est la désactivation d'un indicateur sonore fourni par un haut-parleur (38) ou un moyen analogue du dispositif. Cela peut se produire, par exemple, lorsque le dispositif est un téléphone, si la touche est actionnée lors de la réception d'un appel entrant ou lorsqu'une alarme retentit.
