Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9956448A1] The "Wrist mobile phone" is a new type of mobile phone, which can be carried fastened to the wrist of the user and during the phase of conversation, the user can speak and hear at the same time, without removing the device from the place where it is fastened. Construction of the "Wrist mobile phone" can be based on the existing technology that is already used in the existing mobile phones, compared to which however, it brings particular changes and modifications, resulting a substantial change in the way of their usage. Major differences of the "Wrist mobile phone" compared to the existing handheld mobile phones are: a) there are one or more straps, which start from the lateral surfaces of the device. The purpose of these straps is that the device can be carried fastened to the wrist of the user. These straps can incorporate a receiving antenna. Alternatively, these straps can be connected on a second removable back surface of the device or on the battery of the device, which is placed in the rear part of the device; b) instead of an incorporated speaker, there is a small external earphone (2) which is connected with the top of an extending mechanism, resembling a retractable antenna (6), which can also work as a receiving antenna, and which is extended from the upper surface of the device (that one facing towards the palm while the device is fastened to the wrist); c) the microphone (4) is placed in the upper part of the device. By extending the retractable antenna (6) and by leading it to his ear, the user of the "Wrist mobile phone", can speak and hear at the same time, without removing the device from the place where it is fastened; d) the time is clearly displayed in the screen (5) during the phase of waiting for a call.
