Description

  The present invention relates to a mobile phone, and more particularly to a mobile phone capable of customizing a module.

  Conventional mobile phones are usually attached to a printed circuit board in the main body so that all modules (such as ICs) cannot be removed. And the packaging material which wraps it is made so that a user cannot remove. For this reason, conventional mobile phones cannot be customized by users except for mobile phones such as custom jackets.

As a mobile phone for solving such a problem, for example, there is one described in Patent Document 1. This mobile phone can be provided with a function desired by the user after purchasing the mobile phone by providing a detachable rear panel having an additional function to the main body having a predetermined function.

  Next, a method for using the mobile phone according to the first embodiment will be described.

  The user can purchase his / her favorite mobile phone, for example, the mobile phone 100. That is, the main body main part 110 and the exterior panel 120 can be purchased as a set.

  When the user wants to add an additional function after purchasing the mobile phone 100, the user may purchase a module having a function required by the user, that is, a module to be an optional function, and insert it into the mobile phone 100. For example, when a user wants to add a shooting function to the mobile phone 100, the user purchases a camera (assumed to be a module 140 a) having the function and inserts it into a socket 130 a provided in the main body 110 of the mobile phone 100. can do.

  Thereafter, when the user wants to add another function to the mobile phone 100, a module having the function, for example, a speaker (assumed to be a module 140b) is additionally purchased and provided in the main body 110 of the mobile phone 100. It is also possible to fit into the socket 130b.

  For example, the user inserts the purchased camera into the socket 130a and the speaker into the socket 130b, and then attaches the exterior panel 120 to the main body 110 so that the socket 130a and the socket 130b are covered with the exterior panel 120. It can be attached to the surface 150a.

  In addition, when the user replaces the mobile phone 100, the user may want to use the module inserted in the mobile phone 100 continuously. At this time, if the module can be used without any problem, the user can remove it and insert it into the next mobile phone. For example, the user can remove the camera inserted in the socket 130a provided in the main body 110 of the mobile phone 100 and insert it into the next mobile phone that has been replaced.

  As described above, according to the present embodiment, the main body 110 of the mobile phone 100 is provided with the socket 130a and the socket 130b, and the module 140a can be inserted into and removed from the socket 130a. Therefore, since the variation pattern of modules that can be selected by the user is not limited, the user can freely select a module having a function required by the user, for example, the module 140a and insert it into the socket 130a. Necessary functions can be added to the mobile phone 100. Further, when the mobile phone 100 is replaced, if a socket provided in the main body 110, for example, the module 140a fitted in the socket 130a is necessary, the socket provided in the next mobile phone after replacement of the module 140a. By inserting into the module, the module can be reused.

  Further, the same type of module can be replaced with, for example, a low-function module from a high-function module. For example, a mobile phone in which a 100,000-pixel camera module is inserted into a socket is assumed. The user can remove the 100,000-pixel camera module from the socket and insert the 1-megapixel camera module into the socket. In this case, it is preferable that the user updates the software for the camera module from one corresponding to 100,000 pixels to one corresponding to one million pixels. As a result, the life of the mobile phone can be extended.

  Furthermore, if all users can only purchase mobile phones with the same functions, some users may lack the functions they need, or other users may use only a small part of the functions that mobile phones have. It may be a big investment. Therefore, since the mobile phone 100 that can provide only necessary functions can be made from the manufacturer, and the user can add the necessary functions to the mobile phone 100 by customizing the modules 140a and 140b. Inappropriate functions of the mobile phone 100 are eliminated, and the mobile phone 100 at a reasonable cost can meet various needs of users.

  The exterior panel 120 is mounted on the panel mounting surface 150a of the main body 110, for example, in which the module 140a is inserted into the socket 130a and the module 140b is inserted into the socket 130b, and covers the socket 130a and the socket 130b. Therefore, it is possible to prevent the module 140a inserted into the socket 130a and the module 140b inserted into the socket 130b from falling off.

  Moreover, since the socket is not provided in the exterior panel 120, a module is not inserted. Therefore, since the exterior panel 120 does not depend on the application unit 111, the device control application unit 112, and the device control application unit 115 of the main body 110, the exterior panel 120 can be easily created by a third party or the like.
