An electronic device (200) having a plurality of displays (202, 204) connected by a folding coupling, such as a hinge (222) includes at least one display (204) that may be configured for receiving input and/or providing output to a user. The displays are preferably physically discrete but may be controlled to function as a single display with respect to scrolling text, etc. Each display may be separated into multiple display areas by an appropriate overlay or other suitable separation if desired. The displays may be of any conventional type such as an active matrix, LCD and/or a variety of touch pads or panels. The device is usable as a PDA for exchanging email or browsing the Internet but may also be configured for variety of functions including a calculator, audio/video player/recorder, and the like.
Un dispositif électrique (200) pourvu de plusieurs affichages (202, 204) connectés par un mode de raccordement par pliage, tel qu'une charnière (222), comprend au moins un affichage (204) qui peut être conçu pour recevoir une entrée ou fournir une sortie à un utilisateur. Les affichages sont, de préférence, physiquement discrets, mais peuvent être commandés pour fonctionner comme un affichage unique par rapport au texte déroulant etc. Chaque affichage peut être partagé en plusieurs zones d'affichage par superposition appropriée ou autre séparation adéquate si nécessaire. Les affichages peuvent être de type traditionnel, tel qu'une matrice active, un afficheur ACL et/ou une variété de blocs à effleurement ou de panneaux. On peut utiliser le dispositif comme un PDA qui permet d'échanger des courriels et de naviguer sur Internet, mais on peut également le configurer pour une diversité de fonctions incluant un calculateur, un lecteur-enregistreur audio/vidéo, et similaire.
