  • Publication number: 20120154306
    Abstract: An apparatus and a method for inputting a character are provided. The apparatus for inputting a character includes a touch input unit configured to sense a generation and a contact point of a touch. The apparatus also includes a memory configured to store mapping information regarding a displacement and a character according to movement of the generated touch. The apparatus further includes a controller configured to extract and output a character corresponding to a displacement of a sensed touch while the touch maintains upon sensing the touch. The apparatus also includes a display unit configured to display the output character. The method and apparatus for inputting a character may increase character input speed, and provide an environment similar to a keyboard of a PC, for example, a key arrangement of a QWERTY type to improve convenience for a user.

  • Patent number: 7986655
    Abstract: A method for connecting, by a first Bluetooth device of a first piconet, a link between a second Bluetooth device of a second piconet and a third Bluetooth device of a third piconet that cannot directly communicate with each other. The connecting method comprises the steps of: upon receiving a connection request message from the second Bluetooth device requesting connection with the third Bluetooth device, transmitting the connection request message from the first Bluetooth device to the third Bluetooth device; and upon receiving a response to the connection request message from the third Bluetooth device, transmitting the response from the first Bluetooth device to the second Bluetooth device.

  • Patent number: 7444172
    Abstract: A device and method for automatically controlling power of a radio mobile terminal connected to a hands-free kit and for preventing the radio mobile terminal from malfunctioning. In a power control method for automatically turning on a radio mobile terminal connected to a hands-free kit, the radio mobile terminal including a power control signal generator, a signal output terminal and a signal input terminal, the hands-free kit including a power-on signal generator and a signal detector, a power-on signal is supplied to the signal input terminal for a predetermined time period through the power-on signal generator when the radio mobile terminal is connected to the hands-free kit. After the predetermined time period elapses, generating the power-on signal is stopped. It is determined if the driving signal generated by the signal output terminal is detected through the signal detector. If the driving signal is detected, generating the power-on signal is stopped.
