  • Patent number: 10043045
    Abstract: An electronic apparatus includes a terminal main body, a lid member that is removable from the terminal main body, and a battery that is accommodated in the terminal main body. The electronic apparatus has a first end and a second end, and a first main body and a second main body that has a thickness smaller than that of the first main body are disposed from the first end toward the second end. A reading device is provided at a first position of the first main body, and a magnetic card reader is provided at a second position of the first main body. In the magnetic card reader a slot through which a magnetic stripe of a magnetic card passes is provided, and the slot is defined in an inclined state such that the thickness of the electronic apparatus due to the magnetic card reader is prevented.

  • Patent number: 8872975
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a receiving device, a display controlling method, and a program that can make effective use of captions included in programs. In a TV receiver 1, tuners 11A to 11C are each a tuner for receiving a program. A display section 16 displays caption related information related to caption data included in an object program received by the digital tuner 11B together with an image of a main program received by the digital tuner 11A. The present invention is, for example, applicable to TV receivers having a plurality of tuners for receiving a broadcast program, and the like.

  • Patent number: 8472975
    Abstract: Highly-accurate approximate positional information is transmitted to a communication terminal. An approximate positional information database of a server included in a positioning support system includes approximate positional information used for positioning calculation at the communication terminal and which indicates a position of a cell in which the communication terminal is located and a cell identifier identifying the cell, with approximate positional information and the cell being associated with each other. Based on a positioning information transmission request which includes a cell and which is transmitted from the communication terminal, approximate positional information stored in the approximate positional information database is acquired and transmitted from a communication unit to the communication terminal.

  • Publication number: 20110306356
    Abstract: Highly-accurate approximate positional information is transmitted to a communication terminal. An approximate positional information DB 23 of a SUPL server 20 included in a positioning support system 10 includes approximate positional information which is used for positioning calculation at the communication terminal 60 and which indicates a position of a cell C1 in which the communication terminal 60 exists and a cell ID identifying the cell C1, with approximate positional information and the cell ID being associated with each other. Based on a positioning information transmission request which includes a cell ID and which is transmitted from the communication terminal 60, approximate positional information stored in the approximate positional information DB 23 is acquired and transmitted from a communication unit 21 to the communication terminal 60.

  • Publication number: 20110207464
    Abstract: There are provided a call control system, a call controller, a terminal device, and a call control method capable of selecting an optimum communication network without overly complicating the configuration of the terminal device and the call controller. A call controller accesses information representing present conditions including a failure of a communication network held in a communication network present condition data holding unit, and information held in an applicable priority order data holding unit on the terminal device and which is information of the priority order for communication network selection acquired and held in the call-originating side information acquiring and holding unit on the call controller side. A call control unit on the call controller side selects an optimum communication network for setting up a call.
