  • Patent number: 9354900
    Abstract: A device (110) and method (700) for providing windows in a multi-environment operating system is provided. A first operating system environment (first OSE) (222) is executed in a native mode on a mobile device (110). The mobile device comprises a first graphical user interface (GUI) 112. The first OSE generates graphical data for a first OSE window (118). The first OSE window can be used on the first GUI for interfacing with the first OSE. A second operating system environment (second OSE) (224) is executed in a native mode on the mobile device, wherein the second OSE generates a GUI desktop (318) that is displayed on a second GUI (312). A second window (320) is rendered on the GUI desktop that comprises the first OSE window. The second OSE communicates relevant events to the first OSE, which are used by the first OSE to update the information used to render the first OSE window within the second OSE window.

  • Patent number: 8983536
    Abstract: A method for providing user access to telephony operations in a multi operating environment having memory resources nearly depleted that include determining whether a predetermined first memory threshold of a computing environment has been reached and displaying a user interface corresponding to memory usage; and determining whether a predetermined second memory threshold, greater than the first, of the computing environment has been reached. Restricting computing functionality and allowing user access for telephony operations, corresponding to a mobile device, when the second memory threshold is reached is included as well. Also included is maintaining the computing restriction until the memory usage returns below the second memory threshold.

  • Publication number: 20130293573
    Abstract: A method of operation generates live wallpaper display data associated with a first operating system environment and generates overlay display data associated with a second operating system environment, both operating system environments utilizing a common kernel. The overlay display data is overlaid on the live wallpaper of the first operating system environment. The method may also include generating at least one active application window as a portion of the live wallpaper display data. The embodiments disclosed include an apparatus that performs the above outlined method. The apparatus includes multi-environment display data handling logic, operative to generate live wallpaper display data associated with a first operating system environment. The multi-environment display data handling logic generates overlay display data associated with a second operating system environment, which is then overlaid on the live wallpaper of the first operating system environment.

  • Patent number: 8374583
    Abstract: A method in a communications terminal, including generating a message in a message format that requires transmission of the message in separate transmissions and packaging the message in a message format other than the message format that requires transmission of the message in separate transmissions if a number of separate transmissions required to transmit the message exceeds a threshold.

  • Publication number: 20120278747
    Abstract: An apparatus (110) and method (700) for user interface in a multi-environment operating system is provided wherein a first operating system (first OSE) (222) controls the states of a set of applications of the first OSE. Each application is controlled to be in one of at least a closed state, an open-running state, and an open-suspended state. A second OSE (224) renders a set of application status indicators (326, 340) on a graphical user interface (312) each of which indicates an identity and a current state of one of the open applications of the first OSE. The second OSE determines a user input to alter the state of an identified one of the open applications to a different state. The second OSE communicates to the first OSE an identity of the identified application and the different state. The second OSE changes the rendering of the application status indicator of the identified application to indicate the different state.
