  • Publication number: 20140304651
    Abstract: A method includes displaying a first item on an electronic device and detecting a gesture requesting display of a list. In response to detecting the gesture, a first plurality of representations of items in the list is displayed in a first area while displaying at least a part of the first item in a second area. A characteristic of the gesture that identifies a second item from the list is detected. In response to detecting the characteristic of the gesture, a representation of the second item is displayed as a focused item in the first area. In response to detecting discontinuation of the gesture, the second item is displayed and display of the list is discontinued.

  • Publication number: 20140301360
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and apparatuses for data and/or control offloading and handover in heterogeneous wireless communication networks are provided. Data and/or control packets can be offloaded to a coordinating base station while a user equipment (UE) remains associated with its serving cell. The packets are still transferred between the serving base station and the core network, and the offloaded data and/or control packets are forwarded from the serving base station to the coordinating base station for transmission to the UE. Furthermore, during a handover process, the serving base station and coordinating base station may independently schedule and send a handover command to the UE to reduce the radio link failure rate.
