Abstract

Mobile terminal, in particular a mobile telephone, for telecommunications via a data line network, comprising a touch-sensitive screen ("touch screen") for displaying information displays, wherein an address book function is implemented in the terminal, in which the address data of a subscriber and an image is stored the terminal has a receive mode which an incoming data stream, in particular a call, activates, wherein the receive mode activates and displays a defined acceptance area on the screen, the touch of which effects the output of the received data, in particular the acceptance of the call, wherein the receive mode is a defines additional areal display 5 on the screen in direct graphical relationship with the acceptance area.

Description

  • The The invention relates to a mobile terminal, in particular a mobile telephone, for the Telecommunications over a data line network, wherein the terminal has a touch-sensitive screen ("Touch Screen") for display of information displays, wherein in the terminal an address book function is implemented in which the address data of a subscriber a picture is also stored, the terminal having a receiving mode, an incoming data stream, especially a call, activates, wherein the receive mode has a defined acceptance range on the Screen activates and displays, the touch of which is the output of the received Data, in particular the acceptance of the call, causes.
  • Mobile phones of this kind, which in particular realize an address book function, are well known. Also, it has been known for some time, too the address data of a subscriber in connection with the subscriber Storing a stationary picture in the database. On condition that his phone number is not suppressed, it is possible the incoming call not only with a corresponding beep or a message displayed on the screen, but with this To announce picture. The callee can then over the pressing the function key usually in the form of a green handset to answer the call. At the end of the conversation is the connection by pressing the one with the red handset completed key finished.
  • The Procedure of receiving a call is not a problem in itself, since they are on all devices is almost identical. Because of the little characteristic process wear this Procedure, however, not necessarily to the recognition value of a particular device type and / or a network provider. Overall, the call acceptance no factor to increase the attractiveness and especially of the straight for Teenagers important "fun factors" when phoning contributes.
  • The Object of the present invention is now in a terminal and a Provide method of its operation, leading to increased attractiveness of communication links leads, where initiated the adoption of a communication connection in an intuitive way will leave a lasting impression on the receiving user.
  • These Tasks are performed by the terminal the features of claim 1 solved. Advantageous embodiments are mentioned in the subclaims.
  • Of the The essential basic idea of the invention is that in the receive mode next to the acceptance area an additional areal display on the touch Screen screen is defined, however, in immediate graphical Related to the acceptance area. It means "immediate graphical context "in this Case a spatial Near the additional flat Display to the acceptance area through which the user intuitively connects between the two screen areas. To this intuitive It is beneficial to increase the user's perception Lighting up the flat Display as possible exactly with the incoming data stream, which also contains a message (email or SMS) or a media file, in particular an MMS, to synchronize. The illumination of the previously not shown flat Display happens, for example, in connection with the ringtone. The plane Display thus appears to the user with an incoming data stream and marks his arrival and callability.
  • Especially advantageous to implement the invention, if, as already said, in the stream is an incoming call, with the touch of the Acceptance area causes the acceptance of the call. Then one is particularly intuitive and immediate operation possible, especially if the area Ad directly adjacent to the acceptance area and this particular, at least partially surrounds. In an advantageous embodiment, the incoming initiates Data stream, so the call, even the appearance of the acceptance area, so that the acceptance area and the associated areal display at the same time appear on the screen. Depending on the graphic design of the ensemble "acceptance area flat Display "can it may be advantageous to switch the area display "active" in addition to the active acceptance area, so that a touch the plane Display also leads to an acceptance of the call. This is the assumption area together with the plane Display active insofar as its touch the acceptance or the Termination of the conversation causes.
  • It is also particularly attractive if the areal display is associated with a variable content that is in any visual relationship with the caller, who is thus adapted to the incoming call or the corresponding caller. In this embodiment, the content of the areal display is correspondingly variable. Thus, the content of the areal display may correspond to the image stored in the address book to the calling party. If this image is a likeness of the caller, then the called party knows immediately who wants to speak to him. A realization of this function is not suppressed call Mer technically no problem. In another embodiment, a video transmitted during the call may also be shown in the areal display.
  • One particularly attractive eye-catcher is created when the acceptance area the areal Display and especially the picture as a clearly visible frame Completely surrounds. It has proved to be advantageous if this frame at the top and sides at least almost the same width has, wherein the underside has a significantly greater width. In order to sees the likeness in a sense Look like on a classic Polaroid print and awake in this "retro look" positive Associations. In addition, this Polaroid format has the further advantage that the lower wider frame can be provided with additional information, the through the frame surrounding the picture in clear relation to the caller stand.
  • Especially it is instructive, if the assumption area, thus in particular the Polaroid frame, green colored is. This signals to the user that touching this Range, such as pressing one with a green one Handset occupied Button that causes acceptance of the call. In this embodiment It is also advantageous if the acceptance area is its color turns to red after the call is accepted. These Color design clearly signals to the user that the acceptance area now become the "demolition area" is and a touch the red aborted area will end the conversation.
  • In another embodiment In addition to the active, in particular green, acceptance area at the same time an actively switched especially red demolition area appear so that the user has the option of incoming calls, the conversation reject and stop the beep. Also in this embodiment can a "Polaroid Design "to Application, for example, one half of the Frame green and the other half is red. After acceptance of the conversation, the green half can Change color.
  • The invention will be described below with reference to FIG 1 and 2 explained in more detail. Show it
  • 1 a screen on incoming call and
  • 2 : a screen after receiving a call.
  • In the 1 is the touch screen display of a mobile phone, which is currently receiving a call. The touch screen is suitable for displaying information displays, wherein an address book function is implemented in the terminal, in which the address data of a subscriber and an image is stored. As shown, the mobile is in receive mode, which an incoming call has activated.
  • The incoming call activates a receive mode with a defined acceptance range shown on the screen. In this case, the acceptance area is a frame 1 with narrow side edges 2 and narrow top 3 , The lower frame part 4 on the other hand, it is much wider, giving the impression of a Polaroid image. The frame 1 is colored green with incoming call and signals the possibility to receive the call by its touch. On the wide lower frame part 4 Information such as the name of the calling party can be output.
  • In direct graphical context with the frame-shaped acceptance area is an additional areal display 5 which in this case is the likeness 6 of the calling party. This image is stored in the address book to the calling party. Acceptance area and areal display 5 Both are active, so that the call can be answered by a touch.
  • After the call has been answered, the color of the frame switches 1 to turn on "red", which is in 2 through the areas marked with dashes 7 is shown. This signals to the user that he can end the conversation by touching this red frame or the picture enclosed by the frame.
