  • Publication number: 20130326092
    Abstract: The disclosure is related to processing an input event of an external device in user equipment. Coupling event data may be received from the external device coupled to the user equipment. An input event type associated with the received coupling event data may be identified. Input event data may be obtained from the received coupling event data. The obtained input event data may be processed using at least one of an input application programming interface (API) and an input sub-device driver, according to the identified input event type.

  • Publication number: 20130050122
    Abstract: Provided is a method for controlling user equipment as a touch pad for an external device connected to the user equipment. An operation mode may be changed to a pointing device operation mode when the user equipment is coupled to the external device. In the pointing device operation mode, a touch input may be received through a touch screen panel of the user equipment. A pointer may be displayed on a display unit of the external device corresponding to a coordinate value of the touch input made on the touch screen panel. An operation associated with the received touch input may be performed in the user equipment.
