【発明の詳細な説明】 DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

【0001】 [0001]

【発明の属する技術分野】本発明は、携帯電話機、PH BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION The present invention is, mobile phone, PH
S等を含む携帯端末機全般用の筐体構造、特に折畳み可能で、小型化と良好な操作性及び視認性を兼ね備えた携帯端末機筐体構造に関するものである。 Housing structure for a mobile terminal in general including S, etc., can be particularly foldable, to a mobile terminal housing structure having both miniaturization and high operability and visibility.

【0002】 [0002]

【従来の技術】近年の携帯電話機では、ソフト機能の発展に伴うキー操作の複雑化が問題視されている。 BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION In recent years, the mobile phone, the complexity of the key operations involved in the development of the software function is seen as a problem. 加えて従来の純粋な音声通話以外に電子メールやインターネット、画像入出力等の機能、即ちPDA或いは携帯小型P In addition, e-mail and the Internet in addition to traditional pure voice calls, the function of the image input and output, etc., ie, PDA or mobile small P
Cの機能の一部が携帯電話機にも付加されつつある。 Some C functions are being added to the mobile phone.

【0003】その一方、従来から携帯電話機の筐体は携帯性を考慮する上で年々小型化の道を辿ってきている。 [0003] On the other hand, the housing of the mobile phone from the past have been following the road of every year miniaturization on to consider the portability.

【0004】 [0004]

【発明が解決しようとする課題】このように現状ではこの小型化と操作性・視認性という相反する要素を一つの筐体で両立させるには限界に達している状況にある。 In THE INVENTION Problem to be Solved] current thus is the situation has reached a limit in achieving both contradictory elements of this miniaturization and operability and visibility in a single housing.

【0005】本発明の目的は、以上のような問題点を解決した携帯端末機筐体構造を提供することである。 An object of the present invention is to provide a portable terminal housing structure that solves the problems described above. 即ち、折畳み可能な筐体を採用することにより、筐体の小型化と従来の音声通話以外に情報通信機能にも対応すべく良好なキー入力操作手段と視認性の高い大画面表示を実現可能とした携帯端末機筐体構造を提供することにある。 That is, by employing a collapsible housing, housing size and also achieve a good key input operation section and a large-screen display with high visibility to correspond to the information communication function in addition to conventional voice calls It is to provide a portable terminal housing structure was.

【0006】 [0006]

【発明が解決するための手段】上記目的は、少なくとも三個の筐体を筐体同士が三つに折畳み可能に構成され、 Above-mentioned object, according to the invention to provide a process, is composed of at least three of the casing foldably housing each other into three,
折畳んだ状態の筐体表面に発信受信通話用の入力情報表示手段を備え、折畳みを広げた状態の各筐体パネル面に文字や画像などのデータ通信を行う情報端末機能用のキー入力手段及び情報表示手段を備えたことによって達成される。 An input information displaying means for transmitting incoming calls to the housing surface of the folded state, information for data communication such as text and images on the housing panel surface unfolded folding terminal function for the key input means and it is accomplished by having the information display means.

【0007】上記手段によれば、携帯時には筐体を三つ折りに畳むことで小型化し、現行携帯電話機に近い携帯性を確保することができ、現行携帯電話ユーザーは違和感無く持ち運びが可能となる。 According to the above means, downsized by folding the chassis in the three-fold during cellular, it is possible to ensure the portability close to the current mobile phone, the current mobile phone users can discomfort without carry.

【0008】一方、文字や画像などのデータ通信を行うときのキー入力操作・画面表示時には三個の筐体を全て開くことにより、携帯小型PCに近いキー操作部と情報表示部の面積を確保することができ、現行小型PCユーザーも違和感無くキー入力が可能となり、従来の携帯電話機で文字入力を行うのと比較すれば、格段に操作性が向上する。 On the other hand, by opening all three of the housing when the key input operation and screen display of when performing data communication, such as text and pictures, securing the area of ​​the key operation unit and the information display unit close to the portable compact PC it can be, it is possible to current small PC users also without discomfort key input, when compared with the input characters in the conventional mobile phone, is much operability improved.

【0009】また、折り畳み時に筐体外面となる表面に前記キー操作部と情報表示部と別個または兼用して電話機用の必要なキー操作部(電源、ON/OFFフック、 Further, the on the surface of the housing outer surface key operation unit and the information display unit and the separate or combined with the necessary key operation section for phone when folded (power, ON / OFF hook,
リダイヤル、クリア、10キー等)と情報表示部を設けておくことにより、折畳んだまま受信・発信・通話が可能となる。 Redial, clear, by providing a 10 key or the like) and the information display unit, it is possible to receive, origination, call remains folded.

【0010】また、受信・発信・通話機能を筐体本体と共に、イヤホン付マイクロフォン側にも設けることができ、更なる操作性の向上を図ることが可能となる。 Further, the housing body to receive, origination, call features, can also be provided on the microphone side earphone, it is possible to achieve further improvement of operability. 即ち将来、通話を行いながらの同時データ転送が可能となれば、両手を離した状態で会話することができ、例えば会話をしながら本体に付属されているカメラを操作して、 That is the future, if possible simultaneous data transfer while the call, it is possible to talk in a state that release the hands, for example by operating a camera that is attached to the body while having a conversation,
画像をリアルタイムで相手側に転送したり、メールを作成しながら相手にメッセージを送ることが可能となる。 Or transferred to the other side of the image in real time, it is possible to send a message to the opponent while creating an e-mail.

【0011】なお、筐体を折り畳んだ状態で通話する場合や、開いた状態でおきながらインターネット等の通信を行う場合等、筐体の向きが各々で異なる場合、各々の向きに対しアンテナを回転・移動させることができるようにしておくことにより、アンテナの送受信効率を最大限に引き上げることが可能となる。 [0011] The rotation or when a call in a folded state of the housing, such as when communicating, such as the Internet, while keeping in the open state, when the direction of the housing is different in each, the antenna for each orientation - by previously way can be moved, it is possible to raise the maximum transmission and reception efficiency of the antenna.
