Further, a contact detection sensor 56 that detects that the user has touched the surface of all the numeric keys 48 is provided. The contact detection sensor 56 is conventionally known, and for example, a transparent electrode or the like is used. The contact detection sensor 56 is electrically connected to the control circuit 36 via a circuit board (input signal generation unit) 58. The circuit board 58 has the same number of patterns (12 in this embodiment) on the circuit board 58 as the ten keys 48 so that input signals corresponding to the ten keys 48 can be separately input to the control circuit 36. Each numeric keypad 48 is connected to the control circuit 36 via the formed signal transmission unit 60. As a result, when the user touches the predetermined numeric keypad 48, a predetermined input signal is output from the signal transmission unit 60 of the circuit board 58 based on the change in magnetic force of the touched numeric keypad 48, and this input signal is sent to the control circuit 36.

The interval from when the first input signal is input to the control circuit 36 to when the second input signal is input to the control circuit 36, and the third input signal after the second input signal is input to the control circuit 36 The moving speed in the downward direction of the cursor is determined based on the interval until the input to the control circuit 36. More specifically, the interval from when the first input signal is input to the control circuit 36 to when the second input signal is input to the control circuit 36, and after the second input signal is input to the control circuit 36, The smaller the interval until the three input signals are input to the control circuit 36, the faster the moving speed of the cursor, and the larger the interval, the slower the moving speed of the cursor. Thus, the cursor displayed on the display 42 is moved downward based on the moving speed determined by the control circuit 36.

  In the present embodiment, the configuration in which the cursor is moved downward has been described as an example. However, the present invention is not limited to this, and the cursor moving method can also be changed by appropriately changing the contact direction of the input button. Can do. For example, after touching the surface of the input button “8”, touching the surface of the input button “5”, and then touching the surface of the input button “2”, the cursor moves upward. Can be controlled. Further, after touching the surface of the input button “4”, touching the surface of the input button “5”, and then touching the surface of the input button “6”, the moving speed of the cursor in the right direction is increased. Can be controlled. Furthermore, after touching the surface of the input button “6”, touching the surface of the input button “5”, and then touching the surface of the input button “4”, the moving speed of the cursor in the left direction is increased. Can be controlled.

  Next, a control method of the mobile phone device 10 according to the present embodiment will be described based on the flowchart shown in FIG.

  As shown in FIG. 4, it is determined whether or not the user has touched the surface of each numeric keypad 48 (S100). Here, when the user contacts the surfaces of the plurality of numeric keys 48 (contact detection sensors 56), a predetermined input signal is input from the signal transmission unit 60 of the circuit board 58 to the control circuit 36, and whether or not the input signal is input. Based on this, the control circuit 36 determines whether or not the surface of each numeric keypad 48 has been touched. When it is determined that the user has touched the surface of the plurality of numeric keys 48 (S100: YES), each input signal (for example, the above-described first input signal, second input signal, and third input signal) is controlled by the control circuit 36. Intervals respectively input to are calculated (S110). When the interval at which each input signal is input is calculated, the moving speed of the cursor is determined based on the table stored in the RAM 40 (S120). When the moving speed of the cursor is determined, the cursor displayed on the display 42 is moved based on the determined moving speed (S130).

  As described above, according to the present embodiment, the movement speed of the cursor displayed on the display 42 is controlled based on the contact speed at which the plurality of touch detection sensors 56 are touched when the touch sensors 56 are touched. The cursor is moved on the display 42 based on the moving speed controlled by the circuit 36 and controlled by the control circuit 36. Thus, the numeric keypad 48 can be used like a so-called mouse ball of a computer, and for example, the cursor can be moved easily and quickly.

  In particular, the moving speed of the cursor is determined by the control circuit 36 based on the interval of input signals that are input from the circuit board 58 to the control circuit 36 via the signal transmission unit 60 when touching the contact detection sensor 56. Thereby, the movement speed of the cursor can be easily determined only by detecting the interval between the input signals input by the control circuit 36.

  In the above-described embodiment, the control on the moving speed of the cursor has been described as an example, but the present invention is not limited to this. For example, the present invention can also be applied to a scroll speed at which a page of the address book is scrolled. In this case, the scroll movement of the address book page (movement target information) displayed on the display 42 is calculated in the RAM 40 based on the input speed of the input signal input from the signal transmission unit 60 of the circuit board 58 to the control circuit 36. The program to be stored is stored. Specifically, a table indicating the correspondence between the interval of the input signals input from the signal transmission unit 60 of the circuit board 58 to the control circuit 36 and the scroll moving speed on the display 42 of the address book page is stored. . Thus, similarly to the above-described embodiment, the control circuit 36 determines the scroll movement speed for scrolling the address book page based on the interval of the input signals input from the signal transmission unit 60 of the circuit board 58 to the control circuit 36. can do. When the determined scroll movement speed is slow, pages with few address books (for example, about three pages) can be scrolled, and when the determined scroll movement speed is fast, many pages of the address book (for example, 10 pages) can be scrolled.

  Furthermore, the present invention can be applied to the selection speed of a browser (for example, EZWeb (registered trademark)). In this case, the RAM 40 stores a program for calculating the selection speed of the browser (movement target information) based on the input speed of the input signal input from the signal transmission unit 60 of the circuit board 58 to the control circuit 36. Specifically, a table indicating the correspondence between the interval of the input signals input from the signal transmission unit 60 of the circuit board 58 to the control circuit 36 and the selection speed of the browser is stored. As a result, similarly to the above embodiment, the control circuit 36 determines the selection speed of the browser (movement target information) based on the interval of the input signals input from the signal transmission unit 60 of the circuit board 58 to the control circuit 36. be able to. For example, when various categories (for example, news, weather forecast, TV program, gourmet, etc.) are displayed on the screen, if the user quickly traces the contact detection sensor 56 with a finger, the category is displayed on each category. The cursor can be moved quickly. Further, when each category is displayed on the screen one page per category, it is possible to turn the page quickly by tracing the finger quickly. Of course, if you follow your finger slowly, you can turn the page slowly.

  In this embodiment, the contact detection sensor 56 is arranged on the numeric keypad 48, but the contact detection sensor may be arranged not only on the numeric keypad 48 but also on the casing of the mobile phone device 10. Further, a detection device for detecting that the finger is compared may be arranged by detecting the capacitance inside the housing.
