  • Patent number: 8526921
    Abstract: A method for voice based communication between a number of mobile terminals of a telecommunication network, the method comprising the steps of creating a group of said number of terminals and storing group information in each of the number of terminals, recording a voice message in one of the terminals of the group, dispatching the voice message to the terminals of the group from the one of the terminals, and receiving the voice message at least all other terminals of the group. The step of creating a group of terminals further comprises the steps of coupling together a number of mobile terminals, initiating a group creation command from at least one of the terminals, sending predetermined information from terminal to terminal to each terminal of the number of terminals for forming a group information, and transmitting the group information to all of the terminals thus forming a group of the terminals.

  • Patent number: 7216034
    Abstract: A system and method for providing an interactive, multi-modal interface used to generate a route drawing. A mobile terminal display initially displays map data indicative of a user's region of interest. Through a series of audible, visual, and tactile excitations, the user interacts with the route drawing system to generate a desired route to be superimposed upon the user's region of interest. User preferences are used by the system to intelligently aid the user in selection of each segment of the route to be drawn. An analysis of each segment, as well as an analysis of the final route, is performed so that the attributes of the route, along with the graphical representation of the route itself, may be stored either locally within the mobile terminal or remotely within a map server.

  • Patent number: 7149550
    Abstract: The input of words into a text string in a communication terminal is handled by recording a key stroke sequence inputted for characterising one of said words, and comparing said key strokes sequence with candidates in a word completion directory in order to find word completion candidates matching said key stroke sequence. One of said matching word completion candidates is displayed in the display for selection by the user. When the user selects a word which exceeds a first predetermined number of characters the selected word is added to the directory including a plurality of word completion candidates, if the selected word is not present there already.

  • Patent number: 7142894
    Abstract: This invention describes a mobile phone with a means of measuring a background sound level of an environment. When a user either initiates or receives a phone call, sound levels before and during the call are compared. Once it is decided that the voice is too loud based on a predetermined criteria, the phone gives the user a feedback indicating that the voice is too loud and potentially a disruption to other people. Furthermore, the present invention provides a feedback for a voice adjustment by utilizing a sidetone adaptive signal that filters the user own speech directly to an earpiece.

  • Patent number: 7075513
    Abstract: A method and system for manipulating content displayed on a display screen is disclosed. A data processing device has two attached user input controls, such as touch pads, joysticks, and the like. One of the controls may be used for panning (i.e. scrolling up and down and/or left and right) content on the display screen, while the other control may simultaneously be used for zooming in and zooming out of content as it is displayed on the display screen. The zoom and pan increment levels may be smooth or stepped, depending on a user preference, to aid in navigation of the content displayed on the display screen.
