Title
(EN) MOBILE TELEPHONE WITH IMPROVED MAN MACHINE INTERFACE
(FR) TELEPHONE MOBILE A INTERFACE HOMME-MACHINE AMELIOREE
Abstract
(EN) The present invention envisages a GSM mobile telephone in which a line of icons is displayed on a display. As a user navigates through the displayed line of icons, the positions of the icons alter so that the selectable icon moves to the head of the line. This approach makes it very clear (i) which icon is selectable at any time and (ii) where that icon sits in relation to other icons at the same functional level (e.g. only first level icons will be present in one line). First level icons typically relate to the following functions: phonebook; messages; call register; counters; call diversion; telephone settings; network details; tools; voice mail and IrDA activation.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un téléphone mobile GSM dans lequel une ligne d'icônes est affichée sur un écran d'affichage. Au fur et à mesure que l'utilisateur explore la ligne d'icônes, la position des icônes se modifie de façon que l'icône sélectionnable se déplace en tête de ligne. Cette manière de faire illustre clairement : (i) quelle icône peut être sélectionnée à tout moment et (ii) où l'icône se situe par rapport aux autres icônes de même niveau fonctionnel (par exemple, seules les icônes de premier niveau seront présentes sur une ligne). Les icônes de premier niveau concernent généralement les fonctions suivantes : répertoire, messages, registre d'appels, compteurs, déviation d'appels, réglages, réseaux, outils, messages vocaux et activation IrDA.
