  • Patent number: 8806382
    Abstract: In a terminal device 10, two rectangular casings 11A, 11B are connected by a hinge section 12, and touch screens TD1, TD2 of the same shape and size (rectangular) are arranged on substantially the entire inner surface thereof, respectively. When a slide operation performed on at least one of the touch screens TD1, TD2 is detected with the two vertically long casings 11A, 11B being horizontally aligned (horizontally opened state), a control section 1 identifies the touch screen on which the slide operation has been performed as an operation screen and performs display control corresponding to the slide operation on the touch screens TD1, TD2 including the operation screen and a touch screen related thereto (such as an adjacent screen). For example, it sequentially performs page turning on display information on the touch screens TD1, TD2, as display control corresponding to the slide operation.
