Title: MOBILE COMMUNICATIONS DEVICE WITH A PRIVATE ZONE AND A NON-PRIVATE ZONE AND METHODS OF DISPLAYING COMMUNICATIONS IN THE SAME
Abstract:
A mobile communications device (130) comprising a display with a private zone (310) and a non-private zone (320) and methods of displaying communications in the same. In one embodiment, the mobile communications device (130) includes a display (300) having a private zone (310) in which viewing is relatively more restricted and a non-private zone (320) in which viewing is relatively less restricted. The mobile communications device (130) further includes a transceiver (230) to transmit and receive communications and an electronic processor (210) electrically coupled to the transceiver (230) and to the display (300). The electronic processor (210) is configured to receive a message and determine whether the message is private. The electronic processor (210) displays the message in the private zone (310) when the message is private.
