另外，在第1机壳32的配置了显示单元11的面上，在与连接部分36相反一侧的端部设置着受话器13，在第2机壳34的配置了主操作单元17的面上，在与连接部分36相反一侧的端部设置着送话器15。 In addition, in the first configuration of the surface of the display unit housing 11, 32, and 36 at the opposite side of the surface 17 of the end portion of the receiver 13, the second housing 34 is configured with main operating unit connecting portion , with the portion 36 connected to the opposite side of the end portion 15 is provided with a microphone.
折叠型便携电话机30从第1机壳32与第2机壳34重叠的状态出发，以连接部分36的杆为中心，通过把第1机壳32沿着顺时针方向(图1的箭头a方向)转动180度，如图3所示，能够成为可以从外侧看到设置在第2机壳34上的主操作单元17的打开了折叠型便携电话机30的状态。 Folding type portable telephone 30 from the housing 34 and the second overlapping the first housing 32 starting state, to connect the rod portion 36 as the center, by the first housing 32 in the clockwise direction of arrow a (FIG. 1 direction) is rotated 180 degrees, as shown in Figure 3, it can be seen to be provided on the second housing 34 of the main operating unit opened the folding-type portable telephone 17 for 30 from the outside.
另外，如图1所示，通过把第1机壳32沿着反时针方向(箭头b方向)转动180度，如图3所示，也能够成为可以从外侧看到设置在第2机壳34上的主操作单元17的打开状态。 In the second set can be seen from the outside of the housing 34 Further, as shown in FIG. 1, the first housing 32 by 180 degrees along the rotation in the counterclockwise direction (arrow b direction), shown in Figure 3, it is possible to become open the main operating unit 17.
由于无论在顺时针方向还是反时针方向的任一方向，显示面12都在朝向与主操作单元17大致相同方向的状态下转动，因此在打开的状态下当然也能够从外侧看到显示面12。 Because both in clockwise or counterclockwise direction in either direction, the display surface 12 are rotated at the main operating unit 17 toward substantially the same direction of the state, so in an open state, of course it is possible to see the display from the outside surface 12 .
另外，在本发明中，把图1以及图2所示的状态称为「重叠状态」或者「关闭状态」，把图3以及图4所示的状态称为「打开状态」。 In the present invention, the state shown in Figures 1 and 2 and is called "overlapping state" or "off", the state shown in Figure 3 and Figure 4 is called "open." 而且，把从「关闭状态」成为「打开状态」称为「打开动作」，把从「打开状态」成为「关闭状态」称为「关闭动作」。 Moreover, from the "off" has become the "open state" called "Open action" to "open" from becoming "closed state" known as "closing action."
其次，说明主操作单元17，侧键42以及三方向控制杆44等。 Next, 17, 42, and three side buttons direction of the main operating unit control lever 44 and the like. 折叠型便携电话机30如图3所示，第1机壳32和第2机壳34在打开状态下，能够操作第2机壳34的主操作单元17的十字键18以及数字键20。 Folding type portable telephone 30 shown in Figure 3, the first housing 32 and second housing 34 in the open state, the master can operate the operation unit 34 of the second housing 17, a cross key 18 and the numeric keys 20. 这时为了防止误动作，进行控制使得在关闭状态下使用侧键42以及三方向控制杆44进行的操作无效。 At this time in order to prevent malfunction, it is controlled so that the direction of the 42-and three side buttons in the closed state of the control lever 44 is invalid.
另外，折叠型便携电话机30如图4所示，在其背面具备照相机46，镜头48以及录音用麦克风50，其中的照相机46以及录音用麦克风50在关闭状态或者打开状态的任一种状态下都能够动作。 Further, the folding type portable telephone 30 shown in Figure 4, in the back with a camera 46, lens 48, and recording with a microphone 50, wherein the camera 46 and the recording microphone 50 in a closed state or open state is either state We are able to action.
另外，在关闭状态下使用的三方向控制杆44如图5所示，能够沿着上方向(箭头c方向)以及下方向(箭头d方向)倾斜，进而，还能够压向机壳内方向(箭头e方向)。 Further, three directions in the closed state using the control lever 44 shown in Figure 5, it is possible and down direction (direction of arrow d) is inclined along a direction (direction of arrow c), and further, can also be pressed into the direction of the housing ( arrow e direction).
而且，在关闭状态的等待状态下，在显示面12上显示图18所示的菜单选择画面22等的情况下，通过把三方向控制杆44沿着图中的箭头c方向或者箭头d方向转动选择项目，接着通过压向机壳内方向(箭头e方向)决定选择的项目，并且使该项目起动。 Moreover, in the closed state of wait states, the display surface 12 as shown in Figure 18 shows the menu selection screen 22 or the like, the rotation by the three directional control lever 44 in the direction or arrow d direction shown by arrow c Select the item, then decided to choose the project into the housing (arrow e direction) by pressing, and the start of the project.
另外，图1至图4所示的侧键42能够进行压向第1机壳32内的操作，由三方向控制杆44压向机壳内方向的操作进行的项目决定通过侧键42的操作清除，使得返回到前一个显示画面。 Further, FIGS. 1 to 42 shown in the side buttons can be pressed against the first housing 32 operate within the three directional control lever 44 is pressed against the operating direction inside the housing project were decided by side key 42 Before clearing, so return to a display screen.
图6是示出折叠型便携电话机30的电路的框图。 Figure 6 is a block diagram showing the folding type portable telephone 30 of the circuit. 转动检测单元64如图7所示，根据第1机壳32的状态，检测关闭状态和打开状态，检测从关闭状态沿着顺时针方向转动90度的状态(图7中的B1状态)，以及从关闭状态沿着反时针方向转动90度的状态(图7中的B2状态)，向CPU单元62(控制单元)输出其含义的信号。 Rotation detection means 64 shown in Figure 7, depending on the state of the first housing 32, detects the closed state and an open state from a closed state detection rotated 90 degrees clockwise direction state (state B1 in FIG. 7), and from the closed state rotated 90 degrees counter-clockwise direction along state (Fig. 7 B2 state), the CPU unit 62 (control unit) output signals its meaning. 作为这样的转动检测单元64，能够使用体电阻或机械开关，或者传感器等。 Such a rotation detection unit 64, the volume resistivity can be used or a mechanical switch or sensor.
CPU单元62接受来自转动检测单元64的信号，进行关于折叠型便携电话机30是处于关闭状态还是打开状态，或者关于第1机壳32的转动方向的判断。 CPU unit 62 receives a signal from the rotation detection unit 64, performed on folding portable telephone 30 is off or on, or the judgment on the first rotational direction 32 of the cabinet.
例如，当折叠型便携电话机30处于关闭状态时，在使用者顺时针进行了打开动作的情况下，由于根据该动作，转动检测单元64按照关闭状态、B1状态、打开状态的顺序检测第1机壳32的状态，向CPU单元62输出其含义的信号，因此CPU单元62根据该信号，能够判断为从关闭状态顺时针转动成为打开状态。 For example, when the foldable mobile phone 30 in the closed state, in the case where a user opens a clockwise motion, since the basis of the action, in accordance with the rotation detection unit 64 closed, B1 status, open order status detecting first the state of the housing 32 to the CPU unit 62 outputs a signal of its meaning, the CPU unit 62 based on the signal can be determined to rotate clockwise from the closed state into an open state.
另外，在使用者反时针进行打开动作，转动检测单元64按照关闭状态、B2状态、打开状态的顺序检测了第1机壳32的状态的情况下，输入了其含义的信号的CPU单元62能够判断为从关闭状态反时间转动成为打开状态。 Further case CPU unit 62, the user performs opening action counter clockwise, the rotation detecting unit 64 in accordance with the closed state, B2 state, sequentially detects the open state of the first state of the housing 32, the meaning of the input signal can be judging from the closed state into an open state anti-rotation time.
同样，当折叠型便携电话机30处于打开状态时，在使用者顺时针或者反时针进行动作，转动检测单元64按照打开状态、B2状态、关闭状态的顺序或者打开状态、B1状态、关闭状态的顺序检测第1机壳32的状态的情况下，CPU单元62能够判断为从打开状态顺时针或者反时针转动成为关闭状态。 Similarly, when the folding type portable telephone 30 is in an open state, the user operates the clockwise or counterclockwise, the rotation detecting unit 64 in accordance with the open state, B2 state, closed state or the open state sequence, B1 state, closed state By order of the first housing 32 to detect the state of the case, CPU section 62 can be determined from the open state in a clockwise or anti-clockwise closed.
另外，CPU单元62除去这样的第1机壳32的状态或者转动方向的判断以外，还控制主操作单元17，作为辅助操作单元的侧键42以及三方向控制杆44，ROM66，RAM68，以及与天线单元72连接的无线单元70等，执行各种功能。 In addition, other than to remove the CPU unit 62 judges this first state or the direction of rotation of the housing 32, also controls the main operating unit 17, 42, and three direction as the auxiliary operation unit side key lever 44, ROM66, RAM68, and with The wireless unit 72 connected to the antenna unit 70, etc., to perform various functions.
另外，在ROM66中，保存着根据CPU单元62关于第1机壳32的状态或者转动方向的判断起动的应用(软件)，以及其它的应用，在RAM68中，保存着关于第1机壳32是处于关闭状态还是处于打开状态的信息。 In addition, the ROM66, save the CPU unit 62 according to the rotational direction about the state or the housing 32 of the first judgment of the start of the application (software), and other applications, in RAM68, the first cabinet holds about 32 It is off or in the open status. 另外，无线单元70和天线单元72在与无线基站进行无线收发时使用。 Further, the wireless unit 70 and the antenna unit 72 is used when the radio base station radio transceiver.
