  • Patent number: 10353431
    Abstract: In an example, there is disclosed a hybrid tablet computing device comprising a tablet member configured to dock to a base member. The base member may include peripherals and other elements to augment the functionality of the tablet member. While docked, the base and tablet may operate in a cooperative mode, while undocking the tablet from the base places the tablet in an independent mode. A user's intent to undock may be inferred by natural interactions, including for example a user gripping the tablet along its top edge while simultaneously placing a hand over a trackpad on the base. If an undocking intent is inferred but the user does not complete the docking process within a timeout period, the tablet may redock and enter the cooperative mode.

  • Patent number: 10310566
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a foldable mechanism of a mobile terminal and the mobile terminal. The foldable mechanism includes a soft support structure and a hard support structure embedded in the soft support structure. The foldable mechanism formed by the soft support structure and the hard support structure embedded in the soft support structure is used as a component for connecting a first housing and a second housing. When the mobile terminal is unfolded, the foldable mechanism formed by the soft support structure and the hard support structure is unfolded and turns into a flat structure connected to the first housing and the second housing. When the mobile terminal is folded, one side of the soft support structure away from the hard support structure shrinks inward. Therefore, the mobile terminal is prevented from having an abrupt exterior structure, and an exterior effect of the mobile terminal is improved.
