  • Publication number: 20140281470
    Abstract: In embodiments of electronic device mode detection, a mode detection application, implemented on an electronic device, correlates an identifier of a wireless device and an activity of the electronic device based at least in part on multiple instances of detecting the identifier of the wireless device during the activity of the electronic device. In some embodiments, the mode detection application correlates the identifier of the wireless device and the activity of the electronic device based at least in part on the identifier of the wireless device not being detected during one or more different activities of the electronic device. After correlating the identifier of the wireless device and the activity of the electronic device, the mode detection application configures the electronic device to automatically switch to a mode associated with the activity responsive to detecting the identifier of the wireless device.

    Abstract: To reduce the likelihood of APN congestion following a power restoration a UE that is communicatively linked to a network may delay its initial attach request to the communication network based on a function of a randomly generated number or on a hardware identifier that is unique or nearly unique to the UE. Examples of hardware identifiers that may be used include the UE's International Mobile station Equipment Identity (IMEI), the UE's International Mobile station Equipment Identity and Software Version number (IMEISV), and the UE's manufacturer serial number (MSN). Also, an operator-provided identifier, such as an International Mobile Subscriber Identity (IMSI), may be used.

  • Publication number: 20130215064
    Abstract: A method for manipulating graphical user interface elements includes displaying a plurality of elements on a touch screen of an electronic device. Based on a first touch screen contact detected on a first side of the electronic device and a slide contact detected on a second side of the electronic device, a first touch screen element is selected and the non-selected touch screen element(s) are manipulated relative to the first element. The slide contact can be interpreted by the electronic device as a drag, push, or rotate relative to the first element. Various features of the slide movement, such as the speed, the length, the pressure, the direction, and/or the pattern may affect the manipulation of the non-selected elements.

  • Publication number: 20130198325
    Abstract: Disclosed are machine processors and methods performed thereby. The processor has access to processing units for performing data processing and to libraries. Functions in the libraries are implementable to perform parallel processing and graphics processing. The processor may be configured to acquire (e.g., to download from a web server) a download script, possibly with extensions specifying bindings to library functions. Running the script may cause the processor to create, for each processing unit, contexts in which functions may be run, and to run, on the processing units and within a respective context, a portion of the download script. Running the script may also cause the processor to create, for a processing unit, a memory object, transfer data into that memory object, and transfer data back to the processor in such a way that a memory address of the data in the memory object is not returned to the processor.

    Abstract: A method and apparatus for managing transmit power for device-to-device communication is provided. According to an embodiment of the invention, a UE uses a component carrier of one cell to engage in D2D communication. In parallel with its D2D communication, the UE uses one or more other component carriers of one or more other cells to engage in cellular communication. The UE configures its D2D transmit power as well as its cellular transmit power so that its total transmit power does not exceed the UEs maximum power limit, and so that the transmit power on a component carrier of a cell does not exceed the maximum power limit for the cell that provides the component carrier.

  • Publication number: 20130156002
    Abstract: A method in a wireless communication device may include receiving a plurality of sub-frames, each sub-frame having time-frequency resource elements, at least one of the sub-frames having a control channel. In some implementations, the plurality of sub-frames forms a continuum of concatenated sub-frames. Each of the plurality of resource allocation fields of the control channel may indicate a resource assignment to the wireless communication device based on a channel quality report, as well as resource assignments in sub-frames of the continuum of concatenated sub-frames. At least one sub-frame of the continuum of concatenated sub-frames may include information indicating that at least some of the resource assignments are frequency diverse.

  • Publication number: 20130121432
    Abstract: A method and apparatus are provided for feedback for closed-loop transmitting with multiple transmit antenna elements and multiple receive antenna elements. A base station includes a codebook containing sets of weightings for the multiple transmit antenna elements, with each set of weightings identified by an index and the codebook known to the base station and a served mobile station (MS). The base station pre-codes pilot signals using a precoding matrix, preferably a unitary matrix, to produce pre-coded pilot signals, which precoding matrix may or may not be known to the MS and which precoding matrix may or may not be included in the codebook. The base station then transmits the pre-coded pilot signals to the MS via the multiple transmit antenna elements and, in response, receives an index to a set of weightings in the codebook for use in a subsequent transmission of a data stream.

  • Publication number: 20130114543
    Abstract: In a 3rd Generation Partnership Project, 3GPP, communication system a base station comprises a scheduler allocating communication resource of at least one of a Physical Uplink Shared CHannel, PUSCH, and a Physical Downlink Shared CHannel, PDSCH to a User Equipment (UE). The scheduling may either be a dynamic scheduling wherein a resource allocation for a single frame is provided to the UE or a persistent scheduling wherein a resource allocation for a plurality of frames is provided to the UE. A resource allocator assigns resource of a Physical Uplink Control CHannel, PUCCH, to the UE dependent on whether dynamic scheduling or persistent scheduling is performed by the scheduler for the UE. The UE transmits uplink control data on a physical uplink channel which is selected as the PUCCH or the PUSCH in response to whether persistent scheduling is used for the UE. The invention allows e.g. reduced PUCCH loading.

  • Publication number: 20130093705
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a processor and one or more touch-detecting surfaces for detecting a gesture sequence including a first touch gesture and a subsequent second touch gesture. A related method includes detecting a first touch gesture applied to the touch-detecting surface; and initiating a sequential touch mode if the first touch gesture has a predetermined characteristic. When in the sequential touch mode, the method detects a second touch gesture that is subsequently applied to the touch-detecting surface, wherein the second touch gesture includes a glide movement. The method determines a first parameter and a second parameter associated with the second touch gesture, identifies a corresponding device function in accordance with the determined first parameter, and controls the execution of the identified device function in accordance with the determined second parameter.
