  • Patent number: 8135437
    Abstract: In a cellular phone a rotational position sensing part senses that a display casing has been rotated from a horizontally long state to a vertically long state, and a drive voltage is supplied to a TV broadcast receiving part by a drive voltage supplying part, and an incoming call processing part performs incoming call processing, such that a response part establishes a telephone conversion state in response to the incoming call, and a drive voltage control part stops the supply of the drive voltage by the drive voltage supplying part. When a call is made from an opposite side telephone set while a TV broadcast is watched, the call can be responded to only by rotating the display casing, and the supply of the drive voltage to the TV broadcast receiving part can be automatically stopped, so that power consumption can be efficiently reduced while reducing the burden of operations.

  • Publication number: 20100289947
    Abstract: It is an object to provide a mobile information terminal device capable of surely preventing erroneous determination that caption data is included in a digital TV broadcast wave for a program other than a closed-captioned broadcast program. A PES generating part 13 combines a plurality of TS (Transport Stream) packets extracted from a digital TV broadcast wave on a data type basis to thereby generate a PES (Packetized Elementary Stream) including caption data. A caption management data detecting part 18 detects a presence or an absence of caption management data periodically included in the caption data, and on the basis of a result of the detection, a caption outputting part 16 outputs a caption.

  • Publication number: 20090258675
    Abstract: It is an object to provide a cellular phone capable of efficiently reducing power consumption. If a rotational position sensing part senses that a display casing has been rotated from a horizontally long state to a vertically long state, and further if a drive voltage is supplied to a TV broadcast receiving part by a drive voltage supplying part 33, and an incoming call processing part 31 performs incoming call processing, a response part 32 establishes a telephone conversion state in response to the incoming call, and a drive voltage control part 35 stops the supply of the drive voltage by the drive voltage supplying part 33. Based on this, if a call from an opposite side telephone set is made while a TV broadcast is watched, the call can be responded to only by rotating the display casing, and the supply of the drive voltage to the TV broadcast receiving part can be automatically stopped, so that power consumption can be efficiently reduced while reducing the burden of operations.
