The technical field to which the present invention relates includes the display of alerts on computing devices, in particular on mobile display devices.

BACKGROUND

Computing devices are becoming more common. For example, users can use a traditional desktop computing machine, a tablet computing machine, a mobile phone, and the like. for access to various functions performed for work and personal purposes. Additionally, the number of functions that are available to users of these devices also continues to increase.

However, user interaction with applications and their alerts can be difficult due to the number of applications installed on the computing device, as well as the abundance of various alerts continuously displayed on the display device of the computing device. This volume of alerts can distract the user who needs to read the text of each displayed alert all the time in order to determine its importance for the user at a given time. Thus, moving through the indicated set of alerts in order to find the necessary information can take a considerable amount of time, which can be further complicated in view of the number of applications that are available on the computing device.

In addition, users want their computing devices to filter or otherwise interpret their environment, including the information provided to them on the display device of their computing device, which makes it easier today to provide greater productivity and efficiency in an increasingly multi-tasking environment.

Numerous specific details are set forth in the following description in order to provide a more complete understanding of the claimed invention. These details are presented for purposes of example, and the present invention can be practiced in accordance with the claims without some or all of the specified specific details. For clarity, technical material known from the technical fields associated with the claimed invention is not described in detail in order not to unduly complicate the claimed invention.

Overview

Alerts (for example, text messages) can be used by applications to display information (for example, SMS alerts, email, etc.) that is received from an application without the need for a special launch of the application by the user, or that can be received from an application whose launch implemented by the user. For example, a weather forecast application may send an alert to display current weather conditions. Another example of a notification sent to display an alert may be a text message (for example, one friend sent an “Hello!” Email message to another friend) sent by another computing device connected via a data network to the computing device displaying the alert. However, standard technologies that are used to display alerts are often static and therefore do not allow developers to control how alerts will be displayed on the user interface of a computing device. It is known that an application sending an alert can be hosted on a computing device displaying an alert on its user interface, and / or the application can be hosted via a network service or other computing device connected via a data network to a device displaying an alert on its user interface.

The techniques described herein can be used to manage alerts, including processing alerts received from applications and then displayed as modified alerts on a display device of a computing device. Additionally, according to one or more implementations, these technologies can be performed without executing the corresponding application, which thereby increases the battery life and improves the performance of computing devices that use these technologies (for example, when modified alerts are displayed on a screen with low energy consumption, such as an electronic ink or electronic paper (EPD) -based display device that acts as a bistable display screen 112 — see FIG. 1). The sections below describe examples of several different technologies that relate to application alerts, for example, receiving alerts, analyzing the text content of alerts, selecting one or more parts of the text from the text content of the alert based on coincidence with specified parts of the text (for example, a word, a group of words, a verbal template, a phrase from words, etc.), replacing the text content of the alert based on the results of matching parts of the text, displaying one or more received alerts as ve modified alerts based on the criteria used to replace and / or display alerts, prioritize alerts and / or alert content, etc. Further consideration of these and other technologies is performed in the sections below.

Alerts can mean sending a text message, or exchanging short text messages, as well as dialing and sending a short electronic message between two or more mobile phones or stationary or portable devices 102, 104 in the network 106, see figure 1. The term “text message” can mean messages sent using the Short Message Service (SMS), as well as messages containing content based on image, video and sound (known as MMS messages). By sender of a text message is meant a compiler of a text message, although the service itself is characterized by various colloquialisms depending on the region of the globe. It can simply be called “text” in North America, the United Kingdom, Australia and the Philippines, SMS in most of continental Europe, and TMS or SMS in the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Regarding the exchange of standard SMS messages, each message can use 140 bits (octets) as text content, which is equal to 160 characters (7 bit bytes) of the English alphabet using 7-bit encoding, or at least 70 characters of languages using non-Latin alphabet using the UTF-16 encoding. Alternatively, for other forms of text messaging, the typically quoted 140 character limit is limited to certain services, such as Twitter, which reserves 20 characters for non-message content, such as addressing.

As discussed below, some text messages, such as SMS, can also be used by applications 110 to remotely control household electronic devices, as well as other software applications or devices (for example, peripheral devices of a computer associated with operating system 108) - see FIG. .one. In addition, abbreviated codes can be special telephone numbers that are shorter than full telephone numbers, and which can be used as the address of SMS and MMS text messages sent via mobile phones or landlines. There are two types of abbreviated codes: dialing a phone number and messaging.

In addition, it should be recognized that alerts can be referred to as electronic messages containing text content generated when sent by applications 110 — see FIG. 1. Electronic text messages can be used to interact with other automated systems, for example, to distribute products or services. Service providers can use the direct sending of text messages to users' mobile phones regarding products, payment deadlines, and so on, in the form of an email message. Alerts can contain text content that includes letters of the alphabet, numbers, as well as special characters, if necessary. For example, according to the direct and short definition, for the purposes of this document, text messaging between phones or mobile phones may include the use of all 26 letters of the alphabet and 10 numbers, i.e. alphanumeric messages, or text that can be sent by the originator of the text message or received by the recipient of the message.

The following description at the beginning describes an exemplary environment in which the technologies described in this document may be used. Then, exemplary procedures that can be performed in an exemplary environment as well as other environments are described. Therefore, the operating parameters of the exemplary procedures are not limited to the exemplary environment, and the exemplary environment is not limited to the operating parameters of the exemplary procedures.

Sample Environment

1 illustrates an environment 100 according to an exemplary implementation that is suitable for executing the techniques described herein. The illustrated environment 100 comprises a network device 102 (for example, in which a web service or other network application is hosted) and a client device 104 that are communicatively coupled via a network 106. The network device 102 and the client device 104 can be implemented through a wide range computing devices, such as, but not limited to, a mobile device, personal digital assistant, smart phone, tablet, laptop, desktop computer, server, etc.

For example, a computing device may be configured as a computer that is capable of exchanging information over a network 106, such as a desktop computer, a mobile station, an entertainment consumer electronic device, a television set-top box connected to exchange information to a display device, a mobile communication device ( for example, a mobile phone presented as client device 104), a game console, and the like. Thus, a computing device can range from a device with large resources containing significant memory resources and computing resources (e.g., personal computers, game consoles) to a device with small resources containing limited memory resources and / or computing resources (e.g. , conventional set-top boxes, mobile game consoles). Additionally, the computing device may correspond to several different devices, such as several servers used by a business enterprise for operations; a combination of a remote control and a television set-top box; an image capture device and a game console configured to capture gestures, and the like.

Although the network 106 is presented as the Internet, the network can take a wide variety of configurations. For example, the network 106 may comprise a wide area network (WAN) such as the Internet, a local area network (LAN), a wireless network, a public switched telephone network, an internal corporate network, and the like. In addition, although one network 106 is shown, the network 106 may be configured to include multiple networks.

In addition, the client device 104 is illustrated as containing the operating system 108. The operating system 108 is configured to separate the basic functions of the client device 104 from the applications 110 that can be performed by the client device 104. For example, the operating system 108 may separate processing, memory, by the network and / or display device, the functions of the client device 104 are performed so that applications 110 can be recorded without knowing how these basic ones are executed functions are implemented. Application 110, for example, can provide the operating system 108 (for example, using the module 114 alerts, which will be described in more detail below) alert (alerts) 109 containing text content 111 (for example, data in the form of text), which will be processed, visualized and displayed using the display device 112 without understanding how this visualization will be implemented.

The operating system 108 may also represent numerous other functions that may be performed, for example, managing a file system and a user interface by which a user of a client device 104 can search, view, and organize access to resources. An example of this is an application launcher (eg, a desktop) that is displayed on a display device 112 of a client device 104. The desktop can contain images of several applications 110, for example, icons, tiles, text descriptions. The desktop can be considered the root level of the hierarchical file structure. In addition, the operating system 108 may include one or more processors 107 used to execute instructions for performing operations and functions / processing (for example, rendering visualized changes to alerts 116 on the display device, access to memory 115) of the operating system 108, as well as operations and functions / processing module 114 alerts (for example, analysis and replacement of the text content of the received alerts 109 for subsequent generation and display of changes notifications 116). Images 118 and associated predetermined parts of text 120 located in memory 115 and shown in the presented example are used by the notification module 114 when replacing the text content 111 of the received notification 109 in order to generate modified alerts 116 for display on the display device 112 of the client device 104. Thus thus, the user may be easily presented on the display device 112 with the interested modified alerts 116.

Operating system 108 is also presented as interoperable with alert module 114. Alert module 114 reflects the functions performed to manage alerts 109, which will be displayed as modified alerts 116 received after initial transmission by applications 110 located on and / or beyond computing device 104. As further discussed below, a presentation in the form of an image 118 (e.g., a cloud) associated with a predetermined portion of text 120 (e.g., cloud) stored in the storage device 115 may be used by the alert module 114 to process the alert 109 sent by the weather forecasting application 110, so that the text content 111 of the alert 109 contains text content presented as including the name and current weather conditions, for example, "Seattle, 65% / cloudy." Similarly, a representation in the form of an image 118 (e.g., a heart) associated with a predetermined portion of text 120 (e.g., Kathleen) for SMS text received from Kathleen's spouse can be used by the notification module 114 to process the received notification 109, so that the text alert 111 content 111 contained text content presented as including a name and a greeting or other personal information, for example, “Kathleen, hello. I want you to call me. " Another example is presented as including an alert that indicates that the current flight is “delayed”. Additional examples may differ from the examples provided, if necessary.

Thus, the user can easily see the information regarding the received alerts 109 on the display device 112, where the text content 111 of the initial alert 109 has been intercepted and modified by the alert module 114 to generate and subsequently display the changed alert 116 by adding a presentation in the form of an image 118 corresponding to a predetermined text portion 120 defined by the alert module 114 as being present in the initial alert text portion 111 and in the storage device 115.

It should be recognized that the alert module 114 can receive and process alerts 109 without triggering and moving through each of the applications 110. Although representations of specific applications 110 are depicted, other representations of the applications 110 are also provided, for example, a representation of the application 110, which relates to inviting the user to use service, for example, the offer of friendship in a social network.

According to one or more implementations, the management of changed alerts 116 may be performed without executing the respective applications 110. For example, the alert module 114 may receive alerts 109 from a variety of different sources, for example, software (for example, other applications 110 executed by the client device 104), from the web service device 102 via the network 106 and the like. The notification module 114 can then control the processing of the alerts 109 and their subsequent display as the changed alerts 116 without launching the applications 110. This can be used to increase the battery life as well as the performance of the client device 104 by refusing to launch each application 110 to issue the changed alerts 116. In addition, it should be recognized that various types of display devices 112 may be used, such as bistable screens and / or more traditional display screens, on Reamer, display devices based on LCD. In addition, as indicated below by means of an alternative embodiment, the changed alerts 116 may be displayed on one or both of the display screens 112 of the computing device 104 with two screens (or multiple screens). For example, in a computing device 104 configured with two screens 112, when the traditional LCD screen 112 is in the off state, the changed alert 116 can be visualized and displayed on the bistable screen 112 when operating in the low-power alert presentation mode (i.e. one or more peripheral devices and / or applications 110 controlled by the operating system 108 are in the off state in order to save the energy of the computing device 104).

Additionally, the alert module 114 may support technologies to enable developers of the respective applications 110 to specify how the modified alerts 116 should be displayed by determining which presentation in the form of an image 118 should be associated with each of the specified text parts 111. For example, the notification module 114 may be provided with conformity criteria used to identify text parts 120 that are in text content 111 and replacement criteria used to replace or otherwise supplement the corresponding predetermined text part 120 in the notification 109 with an appropriate representative image 118 so that to generate a modified alert 116. Compliance criteria and replacement criteria can describe how and where the modified alerts 116 should be displayed, as well as how to manage adjusting modified alerts 116 to determine which modified alerts 116 should be displayed and their corresponding text and image content 118. As an illustrative example, the alert 109 may contain text content 111 "Seattle Weather - Cloudy, Temperature 65 Degrees." Using the matching criteria, the alert module 114 identifies part of the text “cloudy” and uses the replacement criteria to receive a modified alert 116 that contains both the text content “Toronto Weather - Cloudy, Temperature 65 Degrees” and the image content containing a representative cloud image 118 . Alternatively, using the matching criteria, the alert module 114 identifies a portion of the text “cloudy” and uses the replacement criterion to receive the modified alert 116, which contains the text content “weather”, and the image content containing the representative cloud image 118, as shown as an example in FIG. .1 to reduce the amount of text shown in the modified alert 116 compared to the text content 111 of the alert 109. FIG. 2 shows other examples of the modified alerts 116 displayed on display device 112 and including a representative image 118 (tree with hearts) along with text content obtained from initial alert 109 (for example, “Sonya: I love you, dad!”).

Alert module 114 may also use many other technologies to enable the developer or other entity to specify how modified alerts 116 should be displayed and how they should be managed. For example, modified alerts 116 may be associated with a predetermined portion of text 120 and a corresponding representative image 118, as defined and stored in the storage device 115 by the developer (or otherwise sent for inclusion in the storage device 115 by the developer for implementation by the administrator of the operating system 108 and associated device 115 storage computing device 104), and, optionally, along with relevant identification and / or replacement criteria that specify how the modified alerts 116 d lzhny be processed, displayed and / or how they should be exercised control. Thus, the creator of a predetermined portion of text 120 and a corresponding representative image 118 (and, optionally, relevant identification and / or replacement criteria) can specify how the corresponding modified alerts 116 should be displayed or how they should be managed. This can be done in order to provide many different functions to be performed, which is further described in the following sections.

Although this description discloses the inclusion of the alert module 114 in the client device, the functions of the alert module 114 can be implemented in various ways. For example, the functions of the alert module 114 may be implemented in whole or in part by a proxy server or by a third-party device 101 (e.g., a web service). The alerts module 114 of the device 101, for example, can process alerts 109 received from other network devices 102 and / or from applications 110 of computing device 104, and process alerts 109 for distribution to computing device 104 over network 106 as modified alerts 116 for display on the display screen 112 of the computing device 104. It is recognized that the storage device 115 can be implemented as an integrated local storage device 115 of the computing device 104, can be implemented as three peripheral local storage device 115 of computing device 104, and / or may be implemented as a remote network storage device 115 of computing devices 102, 104 and / or may be implemented as peripheral local storage device 115 of computing device 102, and / or an integrated local storage devices 115 of computing device 104. In addition, storage device 115 may be implemented as multiple storage devices located remotely and / or locally about to computing devices 102, 104. Other examples are also provided, such as distributing the functions of the notification module 114 between the client device 104 and the network device 102, enabling a third-party server 101, and the like.

Typically, any functions described herein can be implemented using software, hardware and software, hardware (for example, an immutable logic), or a combination of these implementations. The terms “module”, “functions performed” and “logic circuit” in the context of this document, as a rule, represent software, hardware-software, hardware, or a combination thereof, as combined or otherwise performed by the processor 107 of the operating system 108. In the case implementations in the form of software, a module, the functions performed, or a logic diagram represent program code that performs special tasks when executed by a processor 107 (for example, one CPU or several and a CPU). The program code may be stored in one or more computer-readable storage devices 115. The features of the technologies described below are platform independent, which means that the technologies can be implemented on a number of commercial computing platforms containing many different processors.

For example, computing device 102, 104, 111 may comprise a module (eg, software) that enables some operations to be performed using hardware of computing device 102, 104, 111, for example, processors, function blocks, and the like. For example, computing device 102, 104, 111 may comprise a computer-readable medium 115, which may be configured to support instructions that enable some operations by computing device 102, 104, 111, and more particularly hardware (e.g., the operating system includes hardware, as well as appropriately configured and executed instructions) of the computing device 102, 104, 111. Therefore, the instructions are intended to configure the hardware to perform operations, and thus transform the hardware to perform functions as a result. Commands for the computing device may be provided by a computer-readable medium 115 through a number of different configurations.

One such configuration of computer-readable medium 115 is a signal-carrying medium and, therefore, it is configured to transmit commands (for example, as a carrier wave) to the hardware of the computing device, for example, through a network. The computer-readable medium 115 can also be configured as a physical computer-readable storage medium and, therefore, it will not be a signal carrier medium. Examples of computer-readable storage media include random access memory (RAM), read-only memory (ROM), an optical disk, flash memory, hard disk memory, and other storage devices that can use magnetic, optical, and other technologies to store instructions and other data.

FIG. 3 illustrates an exemplary operation of the alert module 114, in which the alert 109 is subsequently displayed as a modified alert 116 containing an image view 118 added to the text content 111 of the alert 109, as identified by the alert module 114 by interrogating the storage and matching device 115 parts of the text are cloudy text content with a predetermined part 120 of the text of the storage device 115.

Sample Procedures

The following description describes the notification technology that can be implemented using the previously described systems and devices. Aspects of each procedure may be implemented in hardware, firmware, or software, or a combination thereof. Procedures are presented as a set of blocks that list the operations performed by one or more devices, and are not necessarily limited to the order presented for performing operations through the corresponding blocks. References to an exemplary environment will be made in parts of the description below.

4, the method 300 implemented by a computing device (eg, computing device 104) for displaying text content 111 associated with an alert 109 is presented. The method includes receiving, at step 302, (for example, alert module 114 through the device infrastructure from the application 110 locally located in the device 104 and / or through the device infrastructure containing the network interface (see below) from the application 110, located remotely from the device 104 in the network 106) alerts 109, s holding text content 111. In step 304 the identification is carried out (e.g., using the notification unit 114) of the text, a part of the textual content 111, which coincides with the specified text 120 stored in the storage device 115. At step 306, a modified alert is generated (for example, using alert module 114) by combining at least a portion of the text content with a representative image associated with the specified text, and at step 308, the modified alert 116 is sent (for example, using operating system 108) for subsequent display on a display device 112 of a user interface. One example user interface is part of a computing device generating a modified alert 116, and one example alert 109 is an SMS message.

As noted, it should be recognized that the matching part of the text can be implemented as a single word, as a combination of words (for example, a combination of words as a phrase from words, a combination of words as a word template distributed in text content), etc.

An additional step for steps 302-306 may include determining (for example, using alert module 114) whether the text content 111 contains a number of words less than a predetermined maximum number of words before implementing the generating step 306. For example, a given maximum may be less than 8 words, may be less than 9 words, may be less than 10 words, and the like.

It should be recognized that the generation step may include replacing the matching portion of the text with a representative image 118 in the modified alert 116. Alternatively, the generating step may include including all text content 111 with the representative image 118 in the modified alert 116.

An additional stage for stages 302-306 may include (for example, using the module 114 alerts) identification of several parts of the text in the text content 111, as well as assigning priority to each of several parts of the text. In addition, the selection of a part of the text from several parts of the text can be based on the part of the text, characterized by priority, satisfying the threshold value of the priority assigned to the matching parts of the text in the storage device 115. For example, some parts of the text in the text content 111 may not be identified as matching text parts 120, however, each of these different matching text parts 120 may contain a different priority assigned to them, as defined in the storage device 115. At an additional stage, a part of the text characterized by a priority corresponding to the threshold value of priority (for example, the highest priority) can be selected as the matching part of the text.

It should be recognized that the operating system 108, as well as the associated application (s) 110 and the notification module 114, can optionally be configured to functionally (as implemented by the processor 107) generate a modified notification 116 for display on the display device 112 ( for example, bistable, on the basis of LCD, on the basis of LEDs, etc.) by means of the notification module 114 instead of the application 110 located on the computing device, the application 110 responding when it is in the active state (for example, scheno and hence recognized as an active operating system process 108), for processing newly received notification 109 for subsequent display 112 on the device display. For example, the application 110 may be in an inactive state (for example, not started and therefore recognized as an inactive process by the operating system 108) to receive and process an alert 109 for the display device 112 and, therefore, an alert 109 is sent (for example, using the operating system 108, or in another case, alert module 114 is configured by default to receive the just received alert 109 — for example, as a process configured to intercept and identify incoming messages through swarming bus alerts generated by local applications 110 and / or to intercept and identify incoming notification through the network interface, generated by remote applications 110) notification module 114, rather than the application 110, for further processing and generating a modified alert 116.

It should be recognized that the alert module 114 may be configured to select and send the modified alert 116 to another display screen 113 (see FIG. 5) of the computing device 104, and not to the display device 112. For example, the display device 112 may be an LCD or LED-based display device, and the other display device 113 may be a bistable screen (e.g., an electronic paper (EPD) based display device, an electronic ink based display device, and the like). Alternatively, the display device 112 may be a bistable screen, and the other display device 113 may be an LCD or LED based display device.

Thus, in light of the foregoing, a modification of alerts 116 is described for display as part of the received text content 111 from the application. An alert 109 is to be displayed, wherein the alert 109 contains portions of text matching the predetermined text stored in the storage device 115 (for example, associated with a label, such as a metadata label). For example, an alert 109 may be received by the alert module 114 of the client device 104 from an application 110 running on the client device 104, from a web server 102, and the like. According to another example, the alert module 114 of the web server 102 can receive the alert 109 from the device 104, as well as control the processing of the changed alert 116 and its distribution to the client device 104. In addition, a number of other examples are provided.

For example, an alert label 109 (eg, an alert identifier) can be compared with one or more tags associated with one or more other predefined texts 120 in the storage device 115, in order to determine the type of alert 109. For non-matching types, alert module 114 may decide that further analysis and processing of the alert 109 as the modified alert 116 should be ignored.

Configurations of example devices 101, 102, 104

Consider figure 1, the computing device 102, 104, 101, which implements the functions of the notification environment, may include a network connection interface, such as a network connection card or modem connected to the infrastructure of the device that implements the operating system 108. The connection interface is configured to connect during operation of the devices to the network 106 (for example, an internal corporate network and / or an expanded network such as the Internet), which allows networked devices to communicate with each other if necessary. Network 106 may support the transfer of data between applications 110 provided in environments 108, as well as the transmission of corresponding alert content 109, 116.

Referring again to FIG. 1, a device may also comprise a user interface comprising a display device 112 connected to a device infrastructure for interacting with a user. The user interface may comprise one or more user input devices, such as, but not limited to, a QWERTY keyboard, a small keyboard, a stylus, a mouse, a microphone, and a user input / output device such as a display screen 112 and / or loudspeaker. If the screen 112 is touch-sensitive, then the display device 112 can also be used as a user input device controlled by the device infrastructure.

Again, consider figure 1, the infrastructure of the device ensures the operation of the device. The device infrastructure contains one or more processors 107 of the computer and may contain associated memory 115. The processor 107 of the computer provides the operation of the device configured for the intended task (for example, the corresponding module (s) 114) through the operation of a network interface, user and other application software / hardware 110 of the device by executing task-related commands. These task-related commands can be provided by the operating system and / or software applications located in memory 115 and / or by the operational qualities that are embedded in the electronic / digital circuitry of the processor (s) 107 created to perform a special task (s). In addition, it should be recognized that the device infrastructure may comprise a computer-readable storage medium 115 attached to the processor 107 to provide instructions to the processor 107 and / or to download / update instructions (e.g., application 110, alert module 114). The computer-readable medium 115 may include hardware and / or software, such as, for example, magnetic disks, magnetic tape, an optically readable medium, such as read-only memory on a compact disc / digital video disc, as well as memory cards. In each case, the computer-readable medium 115 may take the form of a small disk, a floppy disk, a cassette, a hard disk, a solid state memory card, or RAM installed in a memory module. It should be noted that the above listed exemplary computer-readable media 115 can be used both individually and in combination.

In addition, it should be recognized that the computing device may contain executable applications containing code or machine-readable instructions for implementing specified functions / operations, for example, including functions / operations of the operating system and modules. A processor 107, in the context of this document, is a configured device and / or a set of computer-readable instructions for performing operations as described in the above example, including those operations performed by any or all of the modules 110, 114. In the context of this document, the processor 107 may include hardware, firmware, and / or software, or a combination thereof. The processor 107 acts on the information by manipulating, analyzing, modifying, converting or transmitting information so that it can be used by an executable procedure or information device, and / or by transmitting information in the direction of the output device. The processor 107 may use or be characterized by the capabilities of, for example, a controller or microprocessor. Accordingly, any functions performed by the modules can be implemented in hardware, software, or a combination thereof. Accordingly, the use of a processor 107 as a device and / or as a set of machine-readable instructions is generally referred to as a processor / module for simplicity.

Consider FIG. 6, which shows, by way of example, a computing device 104 (e.g., a telephone) with a monoblock form factor and a dual screen, comprising two display devices 112, 113 (e.g., a bistable display device, an LCD-based display device, a display device based on LED, etc.). The advantage of a phone with a candybar form factor and a dual screen is that one screen can always be visible, no matter which side of the device 104 is on the table. By displaying an incoming message (eg, alert 116) on one or both screens, it can be ensured that incoming messages 116 can be visible when the device 104 is on a table. The first display screen 112 may use electro-wetting technology. The second display screen can use electro-wetting technology, such as Liquavista. For notification 109, 116, LCD / AMOSID-based display devices 112, 113 (liquid crystal display / active matrix based on organic LEDs) can be used for the desired constant mode and higher energy consumption compared to using bistable screens 112, 113. For example, only one of the screens 112, 113 will be a bistable screen. The device 104 may be a monoblock display device such as a tablet device, a bar or candybar candy bar device, a tile-shaped device. Alternatively, the computing device 104 of FIG. 5 may be characterized by a hinged shell flap design.

It should be recognized that applications 110 may be, for example, corporate mail applications, corporate address books, work calendars and other corporate applications, games that are loaded with user applications, as well as music applications. Alternatively, applications 110 may be a corporate / work calendar; corporate / work mail; corporate / working directory and address book; company news (e.g. RSS, XML, etc.); instant messaging system (e.g. What's arr, Skype, etc.); job distributor, task list and to-do list; meeting registrar; notepads; repository, reports and documents (for example, xls, ppt, doc, etc.); exchange rates; dispatcher of secure network connections / connections. Examples of applications 110 may include applications, such as, but not limited to: social networks (eg, Facebook, Blog, Twitter, Line, Sina, etc.); multimedia recordings, applications for playback and sharing (for example, video, audio, photo, music, etc.); games and apps; personal alarm clock and task list; instant messaging system (for example, Yahoo !, Google, What's arr, MSN, Skype, etc.); Useful places application, a program for navigating and displaying geographical areas (for example, Map tools); My Wallet application (for example, banking, billing, NFC payments, auction and bidding / taoboa system, etc.); storage and backup on 3Cloud; utilities / tools (for example, inventory, applications, widget objects, calculator, weather application, etc.); billed and non-billed usage counter / widget object (personal) for data / network usage plan 106.

Representative image 118 may be defined as a computer icon, icon, or other image (or group of images) displayed statically on computer screen 112, 113 and / or used to move applications 110 provided by operating system 108 to or within the environment. The image 118 itself may be a small picture or symbol serving as a visual, “intuitive” representation of the text content 111. Image 118 may function as an electronic th hyperlink or shortcut to access applications 110 or data in the storage device 115. Image 118 may be a small picture representing objects, such as a file in storage device 115 or the application 110 itself, or functions performed within a file or application 110. Image 118 can be used as a quick way (for example, selecting a shortcut) to execute commands, open documents / files, or run the program, according to the interpretation of the operating system 108.

Consider FIG. 7, computing device 104 may be configured so that the bistable display screen 113 is operatively connected through an information connection (as a wired or wireless connection, not shown) connected to power and / or transfer data to computing device 104 when the help of the removable cover 130. Thus, as shown by way of example, the display device 113 is part of the cover 130, and, for example, is located on the front of the cover 130 or located on the back cap 130. It should be recognized that the operating system 108 is configured to recognize and communicate with a bistable display screen 113 through a connection, for example, the purpose of sending the altered notification 116 from the alert module 114 for display on display device 113.

Referring again to FIGS. 6 and 7, computing device 104 may be configured so that the bistable display screen 113 is operatively connected through an information connection (as a wired or wireless connection, not shown) connected to power and / or transmit data to the computing device 104 by means of a removable cover 130. Thus, as shown by way of example, the display device 113 is part of the cover 130, also referred to as the removable housing, and, for example, the display device 113 is located and the front of the lid 130 or located on the rear of the lid 130. It should be recognized that the display device 113 may be located on the outside (while facing out and visible when the cover is closed and covers the display device 112 of the computing device 104) front flap / surface of the lid 130, in the case of a lid configuration in the form of articulated shell flaps, or can be located on the inside (while it is directed inward and is not visible when the lid is closed This covers the display device 112 of the computing device 104) of the front flap / surface of the lid 130, in the case of a configuration in the form of articulated shell flaps. It should be recognized that the operating system 108 is configured to recognize and communicate with the bistable cover display screen 113 via a connection, for example, to send a modified alert 116 from the alert module 114 for display on the display device 113.

It should be recognized that the cover 130 may also not include a screen as part of it, and therefore, two display devices 112, 113 will be located on the front and rear surfaces of the computing device 104 itself, for example, the display device 112 on the front side and the display device 113 on the rear side of the housing of the device 104, or, alternatively, the display device 112 on the rear side, and the display device 113 on the front side of the housing of the device 104. In addition, it should be recognized that the cover 130 may include a device display property 113, while the computing device 104 itself may also contain two display devices 112, 113, as shown in the example of FIGS. 5 and 6, which thus provides three display screens to which the notification module 114 can send modified alert 116 for subsequent display. For example, the notification module 114 may decide to display the modified notification 116 on the display device 113, which is located on the cover 130, and not on any display device (display devices) included in the housing of the computing device 104. Alternatively, the notification module 114 may decide display the changed notification 116 on one or both display devices 112, 113, which are located on the housing of computing device 104, and not on any display device (display devices) that are lid 130.
