In this case, under what conditions the display contents are selected from the display contents displayed on the main screen MD, how many display contents are selected, and at what timing the selected display contents are displayed on the sub-screen SD. It can be arbitrarily set in a sub-screen display condition storage unit M4 to be described later.

FIG. 5 is a diagram for explaining the main screen display information storage unit M3.
The main screen display information storage unit M3 stores the display content displayed on the main screen MD and the update status thereof in association with each other. The main screen display information storage unit M3 stores the main screen display information for the display area A shown in FIG. It is divided into main screen display information for display area B shown in FIG. The main screen display information for the display area A has items of “display contents”, “update status”, and “display order”. “Display contents” are a “radio wave icon”, a “battery icon”, a “time icon”, and the like displayed in the display area A of the main screen MD. The “update status” item is further divided into “latest update date / time”, “update count”, and “update frequency” items.

“Latest update date / time” is the latest update date / time that is rewritten each time the display of the corresponding “display content” is updated. “Update count” is a cumulative value up to the present time when the display of the corresponding “display content” is updated. “Update frequency” indicates the number of times that the display of the corresponding “display content” is updated per unit time. For example, when “display content” is “radio wave icon”, N times / minute, (An integer greater than or equal to 1; the same applies hereinafter). In the case of “battery icon”, N times / hour, and in the case of “time icon”, once / minute. The “display order” is determined based on the “update status” corresponding to each “display content”. When selecting “display content” to be displayed on the sub screen SD, the central control unit 11 With reference to the “display order”, a predetermined number of “display contents” are selected from the top and displayed on the sub screen SD.

The main screen display information for the display area B has items of “application”, “display content”, “update status”, “display order”, and “transmission request flag”. “App” refers to various applications, such as app A (stock price search app), app B (exchange search app), app C (news search app), and the like. “Display contents” corresponding to “application A” are “stock price of company A”, “stock price of company B”, and so on. In addition, “display contents” corresponding to “application B” are “yen / US dollar”, “yen / euro”,... And “display contents” corresponding to “app C” are “politics”, “economics”. "...

The “update status” and “display order” are the same as those in the main screen display information for the display area A described above, and the “update status” is “latest update date”, “update count”, and “update frequency”. It is divided into items. The “transmission request flag” is a flag indicating that the information distribution device 4 is requested to transmit the main screen display information via the wireless communication network 2 and the Internet 3 when the corresponding application is activated or at a predetermined timing described later. When the value is “1”, it indicates that information transmission is requested. When the application is activated, the initial values of the “transmission request flags” corresponding to the application are all “1”.

FIG. 6 is a diagram for explaining the sub-screen display condition storage unit M4.
The sub-screen display condition storage unit M4 determines under what conditions the display content is selected when the display content selected from the display content displayed on the main screen MD is displayed on the sub-screen SD. The number of items to be selected and the timing at which the selected display content is displayed on the sub-screen are set, and each item includes “item”, “content”, and “setting flag”. “Item” indicates “display conditions” indicating the display contents to be selected under what conditions, “number of displays” indicating how many display contents are selected, and at what timing the selected display contents are selected. It is divided into “display timing” indicating whether to display on the sub screen.

“Content” corresponding to this “display condition” is divided into “update date and time”, “update count”, and “update frequency”. “Content” corresponding to “Number of display” is divided into “1”, “2”, and “3”, and “Content” corresponding to “Display timing” is “Not displayed”, “Always” And “Closed Style”. The “setting flag” can arbitrarily set which “content” is used as a sub-screen display condition by a user operation, and is provided corresponding to the display area A and the display area B. “1” of “setting flag” indicates “content” to be used, and “0” indicates “content” not to be used. In the illustrated example, the “setting flag” corresponding to “update frequency” among “update date”, “update count”, and “update frequency” is “1” as “content” corresponding to “display condition”. “,“ Update date and time ”,“ Update flag ”corresponding to“ Update count ”is“ 0 ”, so that“ update frequency ”is set to be used as“ display condition ”.

In the “contents” corresponding to “number of displays”, in the display area A, “setting flag” corresponding to “1” is “1”, and other “setting flags” are “0”. “1” is set to be used as the “display number”, but in the display area B, the “setting flag” corresponding to “2” is “1”, and the other “setting flags” are “0”. Therefore, it is set to use “2” as the “display number”. In the “content” corresponding to “display timing”, “setting flag” corresponding to “always” is “1” in display area A, and “setting flag” corresponding to “closed style” is “1” in display area B. Since “1” is set, it is set to use “always” in the display area A and “close style” in the display area B.

Next, the operation concept of the mobile phone according to the first embodiment will be described with reference to the flowcharts shown in FIGS. Here, each function described in these flowcharts is stored in the form of a readable program code, and operations according to the program code are sequentially executed. In addition, the operation according to the above-described program code transmitted via the transmission medium can be sequentially executed. This also applies to other embodiments described later, and in addition to the recording medium, an operation specific to this embodiment can be executed using a program / data supplied externally via a transmission medium.

7 and 8 are flowcharts showing an overview of the overall operation of the mobile phone 1 according to the first embodiment.
First, when a power-on operation for turning on the power is performed (YES in step A1 in FIG. 7), the central control unit 11 starts power supply and executes a power-on process for initializing a predetermined memory and the like. Then, a standby process is performed in which a predetermined standby image is read and displayed, or a location registration is performed by communicating with the base station 2A (step A2). Then, it is checked whether any operation has been performed (steps A3, A11, steps A22, A28, A30 in FIG. 8), whether environmental information has been acquired (step A5), and application related information from the information distribution device 4 (Step A13), whether the style has been changed (step A20 in FIG. 8), whether there is an incoming call (step A24 in FIG. 8), and whether there is an e-mail received. (Step A26 in FIG. 8).

Now, when an incoming call is detected (YES in step A24 in FIG. 8), a call process is performed for making the call ready and storing the call history and displaying information related to the call (step A25). When mail is received (YES in step A26), mail reception processing is performed (step A29), and then the process returns to step A3 in FIG. When a new mail is received by executing this mail receiving process, a mail icon P3 that clearly indicates whether mail has been received or not opened is displayed in the display area A of the main screen MD / sub-screen SD.

If a power-off operation is performed (YES in step A28 in FIG. 8), the power-off process is executed (step A29), and then this flow ends. However, when other operations are performed. (YES in step A30), for example, after performing a call transmission process, a mail opening process, a news browsing process, a mail transmission process, etc. as a process corresponding to the operation (step A31), the above-described step of FIG. Return to A3. In this case, when the mail opening process is executed while the mail icon P3 is displayed, the mail icon P3 is erased. Similarly, when the news browsing process is executed while the news icon P4 indicating reception / unread of news is displayed, the news icon P4 is deleted.

On the other hand, when a setting operation is performed (YES in step A3 in FIG. 7), a setting process is performed according to the operation (step A4). For example, if it is a setting operation for the sub-screen display condition storage unit M4, a setting process of “setting flag” which is a display condition is performed. Thereafter, the process returns to step A3. If any of radio wave information, battery remaining amount information, and time information is acquired as the internal environment information of the mobile phone 1 or the surrounding external environment information (YES in step A5), the style detection unit 23 Whether the current style is an open style is checked based on the detection result (step A6). If the current style is an open style, a main screen display process A (step A7) and a display content change process (step A8), which will be described later, are sequentially executed, and then the next step A9 is executed to execute a sub-screen display process (open). To do. Thereafter, the process returns to step A3.

FIG. 9 is a flowchart for explaining in detail the main screen display process A (step A7 in FIG. 7).
First, the central control unit 11 has periodically acquired radio wave information (external environment information) output from the wireless communication unit 14 (step B1 in FIG. 9), when the remaining battery level has changed, or periodically Whether the remaining battery level information (internal environment information) output from the battery unit 12 is acquired (step B5), or whether the current time information (external environment information) output every minute from the RTC 18 is acquired. (Step B8).

Now, when radio wave information is acquired from the wireless communication unit 14 as environment information (YES in step B1), it is necessary to update the display of the current radio wave icon P1 on the main screen MD (whether the radio wave intensity level has changed). ) (Step B2), and if the radio wave intensity level has not changed, there is no need to update the radio wave icon P1 (NO in step B2). At this point, the process returns to step A3 in FIG. If the level has changed (YES in step B2), the display of the radio wave icon P1 is updated in order to clearly indicate the detected radio wave intensity level this time (step B3). Then, the process proceeds to the next step B4, the main screen display information storage unit M3 is accessed, and “display contents” corresponding to “radio wave icon” “update status” “latest update date”, “update count”, “update” "Frequency" is rewritten according to the current display update (overwrite storage).

When the remaining battery level information is acquired from the battery unit 12 as environment information (YES in step B5), it is necessary to update the battery icon P2 on the main screen MD (whether the level of the remaining battery level has changed). As a result of the examination (step B6), if the level of the remaining battery level has not changed (NO in step B6), there is no need to update the battery icon P2, so the process returns to step A3 in FIG. If the remaining battery level has changed (YES in step B6), the display of the battery icon P2 is updated to clearly indicate the detected remaining battery level this time (step B7), and then the next step B4. The main screen display information storage unit M3 is accessed, and the “update status” “update date”, “update count”, and “update frequency” of “update status” corresponding to “battery icon” are displayed this time. Rewrite according to the update. When the time information is acquired from the RTC 18 as environment information (YES in step B8), the display of the time icon P5 is updated (step B9), and then the process proceeds to the next step B4 to access the main screen display information storage unit M3. Then, the “update status”, “update count”, and “update frequency” of the “update status” corresponding to the “time icon” in the “display content” are rewritten according to the current display update.

FIG. 10 is a flowchart for explaining the display content changing process (step A8 in FIG. 7 and the like) in detail. In the display content changing process, when the transition is made from the above-described main screen display process A (step A7 in FIG. 7), the following process is executed for the display area A. 7, the following processing is executed for the display area B.
First, the central control unit 11 accesses the sub-screen display condition storage unit M4, and reads “contents” of which “setting flag” is “1” among “contents” associated with the “display conditions”. At the same time (step C1 in FIG. 10), the “update status” corresponding to this “content” is read from the main screen display information storage unit M3 (step C2). Now, since the transition is from the main screen display processing A (step A7 in FIG. 7), the “setting flag” corresponding to the display area A is “1” as the “display condition” from the sub screen display condition storage unit M4. “Update frequency” is read, and “Update frequency” is read from “Update status” in the main screen display information storage unit M3. In this case, the “update frequency” is read out corresponding to “radio wave icon”, “battery icon”,.

Then, the “display order” of each “display content” is calculated while comparing the “update status” read for each “display content” from the main screen display information storage unit M3 (step C3). That is, if the “update status” is “latest update date”, the “display order” of each “display content” is determined in order of date and time, and if “update count”, each “display content” is ordered in descending order. "Display order" is determined, and if it is "update frequency", the "display order" of each "display content" is determined in descending order of frequency. The “display order” of each “display content” determined in this way is overwritten and stored in the “display order” of the main screen display information storage unit M3 (step C4).

FIG. 11 is a flowchart for explaining in detail the sub-screen display process (open) such as step A9 in FIG. Also in this sub-screen display process (open), when transition is made from the above-described main screen display process A (step A7 in FIG. 7), the following process is executed for display area A. When the process B is changed from the process B (step A15 in FIG. 7), the following process is executed for the display area B.
First, the central control unit 11 accesses the sub-screen display condition storage unit M4, and reads out “contents” whose “setting flag” is “1” among the “contents” associated with the “display timing”. (Step D1 in FIG. 11).

Now, since it is a case where a transition is made from the main screen display processing A (step A7 in FIG. 7), the “setting flag” corresponding to the display area A is “1” as “display timing” from the sub-screen display condition storage unit M4. “Always” is read, but if “Content” of “Display Timing” is not “Always” (NO in Step D2), it means “Closed Style” or “Not Displayed”, so that the flow of FIG. The process returns to step A3 in FIG. Since “always” is read as “content” of “display timing” (YES in step D2), the process proceeds to execution of a display content selection process described later (step D3).

FIG. 12 is a flowchart for explaining the display content selection processing (step D3 in FIG. 11) in detail.
First, the central control unit 11 accesses the sub-screen display condition storage unit M4, and reads out “contents” whose “setting flag” is “1” among the “contents” associated with the “number of displays”. (Step E1 in FIG. 12). Now, since it is a case where a transition is made from the main screen display process A (step A7 in FIG. 7), the “setting flag” corresponding to the display area A is set to “1” “number of displays” from the sub-screen display condition storage unit M4. Read “1”. Then, “display order” is read for each “display content” from the main screen display information storage unit M3 (step E2), and “display content” is selected based on this “number of displays” and “display order” (step E3). ). In this case, among the “display contents” displayed in the display area A of the main screen MD, “display contents” for “number of displays” are selected in descending order of “display order”.

The “display content” selected by such display content selection processing (step D3 in FIG. 11) is displayed on the sub screen SD (step D4 in FIG. 11). For example, when the “display number” is “1” and the highest “display order” is “radio wave icon”, only the radio wave icon P1 is displayed in the display area A of the sub screen SD. When the “display number” is “3”, for example, a radio wave icon P1, a time icon P5, and a battery icon P2 are displayed as “display contents” up to the “display order” of the third.

In the main screen display process, the display content change process, and the sub-screen display process (open) in steps A7 to A9 in FIG. 7, a case where any one of radio wave information, battery remaining information, and time information is acquired is shown. However, the present invention is not limited to this. For example, when news information is periodically received from the information distribution device 4, the same main screen display processing, display content change processing, and sub screen display processing (open) are executed. A news icon P4 indicating reception / unreading of news may be displayed on the sub screen SD.

On the other hand, when an application activation operation for selecting a desired application from the process menu screen and instructing activation thereof is performed (YES in step A11 in FIG. 7), the process proceeds to an application activation process (step A12). FIG. 13 is a flowchart for explaining the application activation process (step A12 in FIG. 7) in detail.
First, after starting the application selected by the application starting operation (step F1 in FIG. 13), the central control unit 11 searches the main screen display information storage unit M3 based on the started application, and sets the “application”. All the associated “transmission request flags” are set to “1” (step F2).

Then, after making a transmission request for information (application-related information) related to “display content” with “transmission request flag” “1” to the information distribution apparatus 4 (step F3), the display area B of the main screen MD is displayed. An application screen is displayed (step F4). On the information distribution device 4 side, the application related information is transmitted to the requesting mobile phone 1 in response to a transmission request from the mobile phone 1. On the mobile phone 1 side, information distribution is performed at the time of this transmission request. Since application-related information has not been received from the device 4, at least a part of the application screen (for example, items such as stock price and currency exchange) is blank or remains the previous display content.

When application-related information is received from the information distribution device 4 after such application activation (YES in step A13 in FIG. 7), the current style is an open style based on the detection result of the style detection unit 23. (Step A14). If it is an open style, a main screen display process B (step A15), which will be described later, and a display content change process (step A16) shown in FIG. 10 are sequentially executed, and then the process proceeds to the next step A17, as shown in FIG. Sub screen display processing (open) is executed.

FIG. 14 is a flowchart for explaining in detail the main screen display process B (step A15 in FIG. 7).
First, the central control unit 11 checks whether it is necessary to display and update the current display content of the main screen MD, that is, compares the received application-related information with the current display content to determine whether they are different (see FIG. 14 (step G1), if they do not need to be updated and the display does not need to be updated (NO in step G1), the process returns to step A3 in FIG. 7, but if both are different and the display needs to be updated (in step G1) YES), the display contents displayed in the display area B of the main screen MD are updated based on the received application related information (step G2). Then, the process proceeds to the next step G3, the main screen display information storage unit M3 is accessed, and the “update status”, “update count”, “update frequency” of the “update status” corresponding to the “display content” updated for display are updated. Are rewritten according to the current display update (overwritten).

As a result, when the main screen display process B is finished (step A15 in FIG. 7), the display content changing process (step A16) is executed. Here, the main screen display process B is changed from the main screen display process B (step A15 in FIG. 7). In this case, the display content change process is performed for the display area B. In the example of FIG. 6, “update frequency” is read as “content” corresponding to “display condition”, and “display order” corresponding to the activated application is calculated and stored in accordance with this “update frequency” ( Steps C1 to C4 in FIG. Thereafter, sub-screen display processing (open) is executed for display area B (step A17). In the example of FIG. 6, “display timing” is “close style” and “display number” is “2”. When the current style is the closed style, two “display contents” are selected in descending order of the “display order” and displayed in the display area B of the sub screen SD (steps D1 to D4 in FIG. 11). . Hereinafter, the above-described operation is repeated each time application-related information is received.

Here, when the detection result of the detection unit 23 changes in style (when the style is changed) (YES in step A20 in FIG. 8), the process proceeds to style change processing (step A21). FIG. 15 is a flowchart for explaining the style change process (step A21 in FIG. 8) in detail.
First, the central control unit 11 checks whether the closed style has been changed (step H1 in FIG. 15). If the open style is changed to the closed style (YES in step H1), the display on the main screen MD is erased (step H2), and then the sub-screen display condition storage unit M4 is referred to, “display timing” "Content" with "Setting flag" in the display area A and display area B is "1" (step H3), and checks whether it is "closed style" (step H3). H4) If neither the display area A nor the display area B is “closed style”, the flow in FIG. 15 ends and the process returns to step A3 in FIG.

If “close style” is set as the “display timing” in the display area A (YES in step H4), the display content selection process shown in FIG. 12 is performed (step H5). In this case, a display content selection process for the display area A is executed, and “display contents” for “number of displays” are selected in descending order of “display order” (steps E1 to E3 in FIG. 12). The “display content” selected in this way is displayed in the display area A of the sub screen SD (step H6). Note that if “close style” is not set as the “display timing” of the display area A, steps H5 and H6 are omitted. Then, it is checked whether any application is in operation (step H7). If it is not in operation, the flow in FIG. 15 ends at this point and the process returns to step A3 in FIG. Is in operation (YES in step H7), the display content selection process of FIG. 12 is performed (step H8). In this case, a display content selection process for the display area B is executed, and “display contents” for “number of displays” are selected in descending order of “display order” (steps E1 to E3 in FIG. 12).

The “display content” selected in this way is displayed in the display area B of the sub screen SD (step H9). Then, in the main screen display information storage unit M3 corresponding to the display area B, the “display content” selected in the display content selection process (step H8) among the “transmission request flags” corresponding to the running application. The “transmission request flag” corresponding to is set to “1” (step H10), and the other “transmission request flag” is set to “0” (step H11). In this state, after stopping transmission of information (application related information) related to “display content” with “transmission request flag” “0” (step H12), the “transmission request flag” is set to “transmission request flag”. A transmission request for information (application-related information) regarding “display content” of “1” is made to the information distribution apparatus 4 (step H13).

On the other hand, when the closed style is changed to the open style (NO in step H1), the display of the main screen MD is started, and if the standby image or the application is operating, the screen of the application is displayed. (Step H14), with reference to the sub-screen display condition storage unit M4, among the “contents” corresponding to “display timing”, the “setting flag” in the display area A and the display area B is “1”. Is read (step H15), and it is checked whether “closed style” is set as “display timing” (step H16). If neither the display area A nor the display area B is “closed style”, the flow of FIG. 15 ends. Then, the process returns to step A3 in FIG.

Now, if “close style” is set as “display timing” in the sub-screen display condition storage unit M4 (YES in step H16), after all the display on the sub-screen SD is erased (step H17), It is checked whether the application is operating (step H18). Here, if no app is in operation, the flow in FIG. 15 ends at this point and the process returns to step A3 in FIG. 7, but if any app is in operation (YES in step H18). Then, the process proceeds to step H19, and in the main screen display information storage unit M3 corresponding to the display area B, all the “transmission request flags” corresponding to the currently operating applications are set to “1”. Then, a transmission request for information (application related information) related to “display contents” with the “transmission request flag” being “1” is made to the information distribution apparatus 4 (step H13).

In this way, after making a transmission request for application-related information to the information distribution apparatus 4 in accordance with the change in style, if application-related information is received from the information distribution apparatus 4 in response to this request (step A13 in FIG. 7). Yes), it is checked whether the current style is a closed style (step A14). If it is the closed style, it is necessary to display and update the current display content of the sub screen SD, that is, compare the received application-related information with the current display content to check whether they are different (step A18) If the two match and there is no need to update the display (NO in step A18), the process returns to step A3 in FIG. 7, but if both are different and the display needs to be updated (YES in step A18), After executing a sub-screen display process (closed) described later (step A19), the process returns to step A3 in FIG.

FIG. 16 is a flowchart for explaining in detail the sub-screen display process (close) such as step A10 in FIG.
First, the central control unit 11 accesses the sub-screen display condition storage unit M4, and reads “contents” of which “setting flag” is “1” among “contents” associated with the “display timing”. (Step I1 in FIG. 16), it is checked whether “content” of “display timing” in the display area B is “always” (step I2) or “closed style” (step I3). If the “display timing” is “always” or “closed style” (YES in step I2 or step I3), the display content displayed in the display area B of the sub screen SD is used as the received application-related information. Based on this, the display is updated (step I4).

On the other hand, when any of radio wave information, battery remaining amount information, and time information is acquired as environment information (YES in step A5 in FIG. 7), if the current style is a closed style (NO in step A6). Then, the process proceeds to the next step A10, and the sub-screen display process (close) in FIG. 16 is executed. In this case, if the “content” of the “display timing” in the display area A is “always” or “closed style” (YES in step I2 or I3), the display content displayed in the display area A of the sub screen SD. Is updated based on the acquired environment information (step I4).

On the other hand, when an application ending operation is performed during the application operation (YES in step A22 in FIG. 8), the process proceeds to an application ending process (step A23). FIG. 17 is a flowchart for explaining the application end process (step A23 in FIG. 8) in detail.
First, after erasing the application screen (step J1 in FIG. 17), the central control unit 11 moves to the next step J2, and in the main screen display information storage unit M3 in the display area B, “transmission” corresponding to the application to be ended. All "request flags" are set to "0" (step J2). Then, after stopping transmission of the application related information to the information distribution apparatus 4 (step J3), the application is terminated (step J4).

As described above, in the first embodiment, the display content to be displayed on the sub screen SD is selected and displayed based on the update status of the display content displayed on the main screen MD. Display contents with high necessity can be easily displayed on the sub screen SD, and display control with high convenience can be realized. For example, if display content with high update frequency is selected and displayed on the sub screen SD, the user can be notified of display content that changes frequently.

Even if the main screen MD is not exposed, the display content selected from the display content displayed on the main screen MD is displayed on the sub screen SD, so that the display content highly necessary for the user can be easily obtained. Can inform the user.

If the main screen MD is exposed, the display content displayed on the main screen MD is not displayed on the sub screen SD, so that unnecessary display on the sub screen SD can be omitted.

Since it is possible to acquire information regarding display content that is highly necessary for the user, it is possible to omit acquisition of unnecessary information and to reduce the burden of acquisition processing.

Since the specified information is acquired when the selected display content is displayed on the sub screen SD, acquisition of unnecessary information can be omitted, and the load of the acquisition process can be reduced. Can do.

Of the display contents displayed on the main screen MD in accordance with the running application, the display contents that are highly necessary for the user are displayed on the sub screen SD. Can be easily informed. For example, in the case of an application that sequentially displays and updates stock price information, it is possible to easily notify the user of stock price information that is highly necessary for the user among the stock price information.

The display order is determined for each display content displayed on the main screen MD based on the update status, and the display content to be displayed on the sub screen SD is selected according to the determined display order. It is possible to easily notify the user of the high-display content according to the display order determined based on the update status.

Since the new arrival information transmitted from the information distribution device 4 is acquired, it is possible to easily notify the user of new arrival information that is highly necessary for the user. For example, it is possible to easily notify the user of recently updated news information, frequently updated stock price information, or the like.

Since the mobile phone 1 or the surrounding environment information is acquired, it is possible to easily inform the user of the environment information that is highly necessary for the user. For example, it is possible to easily notify the user of recently updated battery remaining amount information, frequently updated radio wave information, and the like.

(Embodiment 2)
A second embodiment of the present invention will be described below with reference to FIGS.
In the first embodiment described above, the display order is determined based on the update status of the display contents displayed on the main screen MD, and the display contents to be displayed on the sub-screen SD are selected according to the determined display order. However, in the second embodiment, when the update state of the display content displayed on the main screen MD satisfies a predetermined condition, the display content is selected as display content to be displayed on the sub screen SD. It is what I did.
Here, in both the embodiments, the same or the same names are denoted by the same reference numerals, the description thereof will be omitted, and the following description will focus on the features of the second embodiment. .

FIG. 18 is a diagram for explaining the main screen display information storage unit M3 in the second embodiment.
Similarly to the first embodiment, the main screen display information storage unit M3 stores the display contents displayed on the main screen MD and the update status thereof in association with each other. The main screen display information storage unit M3 stores the main screen display information for the display area A and 18 is a diagram showing only the main screen display information for the display area A. FIG. The main screen display information for the display area A has items of “display contents”, “update status”, and “display flag”, and is replaced with “display order” described in the first embodiment. The display has a “display flag”.

That is, “display contents” and “update status” are the same as in the first embodiment, but the “display flag” in the second embodiment is a display selected from the display contents displayed on the main screen MD. A flag that is designated as a display target whose contents are to be displayed on the sub screen SD. When the value is “1”, it indicates that the display target. Although the main screen display information for the display area B is not shown, the “display order” is replaced with the “display flag” in the same manner as the main screen display information for the display area A.

FIG. 19 is a diagram for explaining the sub-screen display condition storage unit M4 in the second embodiment.
Similar to the first embodiment, the sub screen display condition storage unit M4 displays the display content under any conditions when displaying the display content selected from the display content displayed on the main screen MD on the sub screen SD. Or the timing at which the selected display content is displayed on the sub-screen. This is basically the same as in the first embodiment, but in the second embodiment, “item” is selected. In addition to “content” and “setting flag”, there is a difference between having a “condition” item and no “display number” in “item”. The “setting flag” is divided into a display area A and a display area B as in the first embodiment, but FIG. 19 is a diagram in which it is omitted.

In the second embodiment, when the update status of the display content satisfies a predetermined condition, the display content is selected as the display content to be displayed on the sub screen SD. It is a condition for this update status. In the example shown in the figure, as “condition” corresponding to “update date / time” of “content”, “update within ** minutes” and as “condition” corresponding to “number of updates” “Updating more than **” and “Updating more than ** times / minute” are set as the “Condition” corresponding to “Update frequency”, and when this update status satisfies the “Condition”, the display content is sub The display contents to be displayed on the screen SD are selected. The “condition” can be arbitrarily set by a user operation.

20 and 21 are flowcharts for explaining the characteristic operation of the second embodiment, and the others are basically the same as those of the first embodiment. That is, FIG. 20 is a flowchart showing the display content change process, FIG. 21 is a flowchart showing the display content selection process, and the other flowcharts are basically the same as those in the first embodiment. The description will focus on the features of the second embodiment.
In the display content change process of FIG. 20, when the main screen display process A (step A7 in FIG. 7) is changed, the following process is executed for the display area A, but the main screen display process B (FIG. 7, the following processing is executed for the display area B.

First, the central control unit 11 accesses the sub-screen display condition storage unit M4, and among the “contents” associated with the “display condition”, “content” and “content” with the “setting flag” being “1”. "Condition" is read (step K1 in FIG. 20). In the example of FIG. 18, the “content” with the “setting flag” being “1” is “update frequency”, and therefore “update more than ** times / minute” is read as the “condition”. Then, after reading “update status” corresponding to this “content” for each “display content” from the main screen display information storage unit M3 (step K2), the update status is “condition” from the “display content”. “Display contents” satisfying the above are selected (step K3). Now read out the “update frequency” for each “display content” and compare it with “update more than ** times / minute” in “condition”. If there is “display content” that satisfies this “condition”, display it Choose as. The “display flag” in the main screen display information storage unit M3 corresponding to the “display content” selected in this way is set to “1” (step K4).

When such a display content change process is performed, the process proceeds to the sub-screen display process (open) of FIG. 11 shown in the first embodiment (step A9 or A17 of FIG. 7). In this case, if the “display timing” is “always” (YES in step D2 in FIG. 11), the process proceeds to display content selection processing (step D3), but in the second embodiment, the diagram shown in the first embodiment. The display content selection process of FIG. 21 is executed instead of the 12 display content selection process. Here, a process of selecting “display contents” with “display flag” “1” as information to be displayed on the sub-screen SD from among “display contents” displayed on the main screen MD (step L in FIG. 21). ).

As described above, in the second embodiment, since the update state of the display content displayed on the main screen MD satisfies the predetermined condition, the display content is selected as the display content to be displayed on the sub screen SD. It is possible to easily notify the user of display contents that are highly necessary for the user, and to realize highly convenient display control.

In the first and second embodiments described above, the display content of the main screen MD is displayed on the sub screen SD. However, when displaying the main screen MD on the sub screen SD, for example, exchange information is displayed. You may make it convert a display mode like making it display on a graph. The display contents displayed on the sub screen SD may be displayed so that the update status can be identified. For example, when a radio wave icon indicating reception level 2 is displayed, an upward arrow or down arrow can be used to identify whether reception level 3 has changed to reception level 2 or reception level 1 has changed to reception level 2 The arrow may be displayed, or the color may be changed. Further, for example, the color of the display content may be changed according to the update date / time, the number of updates, and the update frequency.

Further, in the first and second embodiments described above, when the display content related to the application related information is displayed on the sub screen SD, the application is operating, but it may be not operating. In that case, even when the application program ends, when the application related information is not requested to stop, or when the display content is displayed on the sub screen SD, a new request is made to transmit the application related information related to the display content. You may make it do.

Further, in the first and second embodiments described above, the update state of the display content actually displayed on the main screen MD is used, but the display content that should be displayed on the main screen MD is updated. You may use the situation. For example, even when the display update of the radio icon of the main screen MD is not performed because of the closed style when the radio wave information is acquired, the update status of the main screen display information is overwritten and stored based on the update status. The display content to be displayed on the screen SD may be selected, and the selected display content may be displayed on the sub screen SD.

That is, when the environment information is acquired in step A5 in FIG. 7, even if it is a closed style (NO in step A6), main screen display processing A (step A7), display content change processing (step A8), sub A screen display process (step A9) is performed. However, display updates such as radio wave icons on the main screen MD (step B3, step B7, and step B9 in FIG. 9) are omitted. In this way, even when the display of the main screen MD is not performed after the mobile phone 1 has been in a closed style for a long period of time, display content that is highly necessary for the user can be easily displayed on the sub-screen SD. Highly convenient display control can be realized.

In the first and second embodiments described above, the closed style is shown as a style in which the main screen MD is not exposed. However, the style in which the main screen MD is not exposed is not limited to this, and is also a folding type mobile phone. It is not limited to a telephone, and any housing structure such as a straight type, a slide type, or a spin top type may be used.

Further, in the first and second embodiments described above, it is detected that the main screen MD is not exposed by detecting a specific style (closed style), but the ambient brightness is increased in the vicinity of the main screen MD. Even if it detects that main screen MD is not exposed by arbitrary methods, such as arranging the brightness sensor to detect and detecting that main screen MD is not exposed based on the detection result Good.

In the first and second embodiments described above, the main screen MD and the sub screen SD are used. However, the two screens may have substantially the same relationship. The display unit 16 is not limited to a display unit provided in a mobile phone, but is provided in a terminal device such as an external display device connected to a terminal device such as a mobile phone through a communication cable or an external display device that performs wireless communication with the terminal device. It may be an external display unit that is not provided. The display unit 16 may be electronic paper.

Further, in the first and second embodiments described above, exchange information, stock price information, and news information are received as new arrival information transmitted from the information distribution device 4, but weather, earthquake, mail, voice, etc. Arbitrary new arrival information such as incoming calls may be received.

Further, in the first and second embodiments described above, radio wave information, remaining battery information, and time information are acquired as cellular phone or surrounding environment information. However, temperature information, humidity information, and brightness information are acquired. Any environmental information may be used.
In addition, any terminal device such as a personal computer, a PDA, a digital camera, and a music player may be used without being limited to the mobile phone.
