Abstract (en)

[origin: EP1198037A2] A portable electronic apparatus is disclosed. The apparatus has first and second portions arranged to be movable relative to each other. Electrical connection between the portions is effected through use of a flexible electrical connector. The route of the connector between the two portions is impeded by an obstacle so that in a first configuration, the connector is constrained to follow a first route, and in a second configuration, the connector is constrained to follow a second, different, route. <IMAGE> <IMAGE> <IMAGE>
