【発明の実施の形態】以下、図面を用いて本発明を詳細に説明する。 DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS Hereinafter, the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the drawings.

【0010】図1は、本発明を携帯電話機として使用したときの携帯端末機を示している。 [0010] Figure 1 shows a mobile terminal when using the present invention as a mobile phone. この端末は基本的には本体部11およびスライド可能筐体12で構成されている。 The terminal is basically is composed of a main body portion 11 and slidable housing 12. 図1の図面は、スライド可能筐体12を引き伸ばした位置にあり、従って、携帯端末機の使用者が受話部1より声を聞き、かつ送話部4に話かけることができる状態を示している。 Drawing Figure 1 is at a position stretched a slidable housing 12, therefore, the user of the portable terminal to hear voices from the receiving unit 1, and shows a state that can be subjected talk to the transmission section 4 there. 液晶表示部2は、携帯電話機として使用する際に必要な情報を表示するものである。 Liquid crystal display unit 2 is for displaying the information necessary to use as a portable phone. 例えば、電池の残量表示、電界強度表示や発信時の電話番号等を表示するものである。 For example, and displays the battery remaining capacity display, telephone number when the field strength display, calling the like. キーパッド部3は通常の電話機構造に見られる0〜9,#および,*の複数のボタンにより構成されている。 0-9 keypad 3 found in ordinary telephone structure, # and is constituted by a plurality of buttons *. さらに、主電源ボタン、「送信」「終了」「音量」「リダイヤル」等の付加的な機能ボタン、およびメモリ再呼出しに関連する他のボタンを備えることが可能となる。 Further, a main power button, it is possible to include additional function buttons such as "send", "end", "Volume", "redial", and other buttons associated with memory recall.

【0011】図2は使用者が通話を終了し、収納するときの携帯端末機の状態を示している。 [0011] Figure 2 shows the state of the mobile terminal when the user terminates the call, houses. 図1で引き伸ばしたスライド可能筐体12を収納位置まで移動させる。 The slidable housing 12 is stretched in Figure 1 is moved to the storage position. これにより端末の大きさは通話時と比較してコンパクトなものになる。 Thus the size of the terminal becomes compact ones as compared with the time of the call. さらには、収納時にはスライド可能筐体1 Furthermore, slidable housing 1 at the time of storage
2が受話部1および液晶表示部2の上に覆いかぶさる位置に移動するため、衝撃から保護することになる。 2 is to move to a position overlie the reception section 1 and the liquid crystal display unit 2, will be protected from the impact.

【0012】図3は、図1に示したスライド可能筐体1 [0012] Figure 3 is slidably housing 1 shown in FIG. 1
2を引き伸ばした状態の携帯端末機の側面図を示す。 It shows a side view of a mobile terminal in a state in which stretched 2. さらに、図4は本体部11とスライド可能筐体12の位置固定部の断面図を示す。 Furthermore, Figure 4 shows a cross-sectional view of the position fixing portion of the main body portion 11 slidably housing 12. 本体部11の両側面にはスライド可能筐体12をスライド移動させるための溝21が複数本備えられており、さらに溝21の内側にはスライド可能筐体12の位置を固定するための孔22(図3では22a〜cと示す)が複数個備えられている。 Hole 22 for the both side surfaces of the main body portion 11 is provided with a plurality of grooves 21 for sliding the slidable housing 12, it is further inside the groove 21 for fixing the position of the slidable housing 12 (shown as 22a~c in FIG. 3) is provided a plurality. これに対し、スライド可能筐体12の内側には、スライド移動するための突起23を備えている。 In contrast, on the inside of the slidable housing 12 includes a protrusion 23 for sliding movement. この突起23が本体側の孔22にはまることでスライド可能筐体の位置を固定することが可能となる。 The projection 23 it is possible to fix the position of the slidable housing by fit to the body side of the hole 22.

【0013】例えば、本体部11の両側面に溝を1本ずつ切り、溝21に等間隔に3個の孔を開けたとする。 [0013] For example, it cuts one by one the grooves on both sides of the main body portion 11, and opened three holes at regular intervals in the groove 21. この時、スライド可能筐体12には溝21の内側にある孔と同じ間隔で2個の突起を備えるものとする。 At this time, the slidable housing 12 shall comprise two projections at the same interval as the hole inside the groove 21. この場合は、通話時にはスライド可能筐体12を引き伸ばすことで、孔22bと孔22cに突起が固定され、図1の状態を維持することができる。 In this case, at the time of a call by extending the slidable housing 12, protruding into the hole 22b and holes 22c are fixed, it is possible to maintain the state of FIG. 従って、通話中は既存の電話機と同等の大きさを維持することが可能となる。 Therefore, during a call it is possible to maintain the size of the equivalent existing phones. これが、本体部収納時もしくは、通話していないときには、 This is, when the time of the main body portion housing or, do not call,
孔22aと孔22bに突起が固定され、図2の状態を維持することができる。 Projections in the hole 22a and the hole 22b are fixed, it is possible to maintain the state of FIG. これにより、小型でかつ薄型である状態を維持することが可能な携帯端末機が可能となる。 This allows compact and capable mobile terminal to maintain a state which is thin.

【0014】 [0014]

【発明の効果】本発明では従来の小型化の方法とは異なり、スライド可能筐体を備えることにより小型、かつ薄型となる携帯端末機を提供することが可能となる。 In the present invention, according to the present invention differs from the conventional method of miniaturization, small by providing a slidable housing, and it is possible to provide a mobile terminal serving as a thin. さらに、収納時スライド可能筐体によって受話部および液晶表示部を覆い隠すことになるため、これらを保護することができる。 Furthermore, since that would obscure the receiver portion and the liquid crystal display unit by the stored state slidable housing, it is possible to protect these.
