Title (EN) OPERATING A MOBILE COMMUNICATIONS DEVICE
(FR) UTILISATION D'UN DISPOSITIF MOBILE DE COMMUNICATIONS
Abstract:
(EN) A methods and systems are provided for operating a mobile communications device, including presenting on it a persistently visible predetermined region capable of receiving touch input. Also described are ways of inputting data into a mobile device having a touch screen (including receiving a user-entered character string and automatically replacing it with a suggested character string); of efficiently locating a desired item within an ordered list of items (including dynamically indicating a positional indicator's position among the list of items); responding to an event by way of the device (including presenting an informational element (e.g., a slideable graphical-user- interface control) on a display of the device that presents contextually relevant data that is related to the event; and of enabling a user to control a mobile communications device that includes a vibration component (including continuously varying an intensity of an output of the vibration component based on user action).
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés et des systèmes d'utilisation d'un dispositif mobile de communications, notamment le fait de présenter sur celui-ci une région prédéterminée constamment visible capable de recevoir des saisies tactiles. L'invention concerne également des façons de saisir des données dans un dispositif mobile doté d'un écran tactile (notamment en recevant une chaîne de caractères saisie par l'utilisateur et en la remplaçant automatiquement par une chaîne de caractères suggérée); de localiser efficacement un article souhaité dans une liste ordonnée d'articles (notamment en indiquant dynamiquement la position d'un indicateur de position parmi la liste d'articles); de réagir à un événement par l'intermédiaire du dispositif (notamment en présentant un élément d'information (par ex. une commande à glissière d'interface graphique d'utilisateur) sur un affichage du dispositif qui présente des données contextuellement pertinentes liées à l'événement; et de permettre à un utilisateur de commander un dispositif mobile de communications comprenant un composant vibratoire (notamment en faisant varier en continu l'intensité d'une sortie du composant vibratoire sur la base des actions de l'utilisateur).
