  • Patent number: 7646426
    Abstract: Electronic equipment according to the present invention includes a display element. The electronic equipment includes a holding frame 23 holding a display unit 22 and including an elastic piece that can be elastically deformed in a substantially planar direction of the display surface of the display unit 22, a rear unit 21 holding a holding frame 23 and including an opening that allows the display unit 22 to be visible from outside, and a front unit 24 fixed to the rear unit 21 and covering the rear surface side of the display unit 22. The holding frame 23 is held with the rear unit 21 by elastically deforming the elastic piece. With this configuration, it is possible to attach and detach a display element such as a liquid crystal panel to and from the case easily, thus simplifying the assembling process.
