Abstract: A compound portable computing device comprising two or more separate portable devices coupled over a wireless link is described. A first portable computing device contains a first portion of a full-size conventional QWERTY keyboard. A second portable computing device contains a second portion of the full-size keyboard, and the first portion and the second portion together comprise the keys of the full-size keyboard. A network link is established that couples the first portable computing device to the second portable computing device. A partial keyboard map is loaded into memory of the first and second devices. The partial keyboard map loaded into the memory of the first device corresponds to the portion of the keyboard contained in the first device, and the partial keyboard map loaded into the memory of the second device corresponds to the portion of the keyboard contained in the second device.
Abstract: A remote (or wire) control auxiliary push button dialing system includes a push button device, and a mobile telephone auxiliary dialing device. The mobile telephone auxiliary dialing device together with a mobile telephone is mounted in a receptacle. The push button device includes a keyboard push button and a key signal processor. The mobile telephone auxiliary dialing device includes a signal receiving controller, a pair of X/Y axis sliding arms, and a press module. In such a manner, the signal receiving controller receives push button coding signals transmitted by the push button device to serially control the pair of X/Y axis sliding arms to move longitudinally and transversely to fixed coordinate positions so as to further perform auxiliary push button dialing action of the mobile telephone by the press module.
