Title (EN) WIRELESS COMMUNICATION DEVICES INCLUDING A COVER MOVABLE BETWEEN OPEN AND CLOSED POSITIONS AND IMPROVED USER INTERFACE INCLUDING SOFTKEYS
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE COMMUNICATION SANS FIL À COUVERCLE MOBILE ENTRE DES POSITIONS OUVERTE ET FERMÉE ET INTERFACE UTILISATEUR PERFECTIONNÉE À TOUCHES DE FONCTION
Abstract:
(EN) A method and apparatus for providing an improved user interface for a wireless communication device (100) is described herein. The wireless communication device (100) comprises a main body (104) including a first user interface (142), and a movable cover (102) including a second user interface (144). When the movable cover (102) is closed relative to the main body (104), the movable cover (102) conceals at least a portion of the first user interface (142). To provide some of the functionality associated with the first user interface (142) without having to open the movable cover (102), the present invention maps a soft key (106) associated with the second user interface (144) to a function assigned to a selected control or key of the first user interface (142).
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé et un dispositif destinés à offrir une interface utilisateur perfectionnée pour un dispositif de communication sans fil (100). Le dispositif de communication sans fil (100) comprend un corps principal (104) présentant une première interface utilisateur (142) et un couvercle mobile (102) présentant une seconde interface utilisateur (144). Lorsque ledit couvercle (102) est fermé sur le corps principal (104), il masque au moins une partie de la première interface (142). Pour fournir certaines des fonctionnalités de la première interface (142) sans qu’il soit nécessaire d’ouvrir le couvercle (102), la présente invention permet d’associer une touche programmable (106) de la seconde interface (144) à une fonction attribuée à une commande ou une touche sélectionnée de la première interface (142).
