  • Patent number: 7896708
    Abstract: An electrical connector system provides both electrically conductive connection and infrared coupling, and includes at least one electrically conductive member adapted to provide electrically conductive connection to another electrically conductive member, an infrared member adapted to provide infrared member coupling with another infrared member, and wherein the at least one electrically conductive member and the infrared member being held in positional relation to each other to be positioned with respect to a further electrical connector for electrically conductive connection and infrared coupling with respect thereto. A method of connecting electrical signals uses a pair of electrical connectors, each having an electrically conductive connection portion and an infrared coupling portion to provide for both electrically conductive connection and infrared coupling between the electrical connectors. The invention may be used in portable electronic equipment, including mobile phones, for example.

  • Publication number: 20100235768
    Abstract: The user interface of an electronic device may be personalized based on one or more images selected by the user. The images are analyzed to create a theme that is applied to the user interface of the electronic device. The theme may be transferred to and applied to the user interface of an accessory.

  • Publication number: 20090179866
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for presenting the sense of an image is disclosed. First, a digital image is acquired and then various sensing tags are assigned to various sections of the digital image. The digital image is displayed on a screen. It is determined when and where a user touches the screen which corresponds to a section of the digital image. If a sensing tag has been assigned to the touched section of the digital image, the tagged sense is provided to the user.

  • Publication number: 20090095804
    Abstract: A connector system, includes a first connector having a number of connection paths adapted to connect with a second connector, and an RFID reader adapted to receive information identifying at least one characteristic of such second connector. The connector system may be used in portable electronic equipment that includes operating circuitry, a display, an input apparatus, a connector adapted for connection to an accessory, and the an RFID reader adapted to receive information identifying at least one characteristic of an accessory and/or of an accessory connector, and wherein said operating circuitry is responsive to such identification or lack of such identification to determine settings for the portable electronic equipment. A method of identifying an accessory to electronic equipment uses RFID communication between such accessory and such electronic equipment to identify such accessory to such electronic equipment.

  • Patent number: 7422379
    Abstract: A stand for a camera device, the stand comprising an attachment element which is detachably fastened to the camera device and at least one support element which is displaceably connected to the attachment element. The support element is displaceable between at least two positions, a “storage” position where the at least one support element essentially lies up against an outer surface of the camera device and an “active” position where the at least one support element is displaced away from the outer surface of the camera device in order to provide a support for supporting the camera device in a steady orientation on a surface. The attachment element and the supporting element are furthermore arranged such that the attachment element remains fastened to the camera device during the displacement of the supporting element between its storage position and its active position. In this way, a stand is provided which may be very easy and convenient for the user to use.
