Patent
Sony Corporation and Sony Mobile Communications | Date: 2017-01-27

An information processing apparatus includes a storage section and a control section. The storage section stores a plurality of templates having different predetermined designs with template attribute information, the plurality of templates each being applied to a display of a content including at least one of a document and an image with the content being laid out on the template. The control section performs a matching processing of component information, as a search key, of the content with the template attribute information, and selects, as a template corresponding to the content to be applied to the display of the content, a template whose template attribute information has a higher match rate than others.

Sony Mobile Communications | Date: 2017-01-11

An apparatus and method for communicating between a first device and second device, where each device includes a motion sensor. Communication functions are triggered by comparing motion data derived from each device. For example, when the first device is worn on a users wrist (e.g., a smartwatch) and the second device (e.g., a smartphone) is held in the users hand corresponding to the users wrist, then moving the hand and devices results in correlated motion data between the devices. This correlated motion indicates the devices correspond to the same user. Further, human-body communication between the devices provides additional indicia that the devices correspond to the same user. Thus, based on the above-identified correlated motion and human-body communication the same user can be inferred and predefined communication task between the devices can be performed, such as unlocking the devices, exchanging identification codes, or exchanging other information.


[Object] To enable a user to simply and easily confirm a plurality of pieces of update information handled by a plurality of various application programs without any troublesome operation. [Solving Means] Information storages (62 to 70) store a plurality of different types of information. An update ion-formation storage (61) stores a part of information updated in the information storages (62 to 70) as update information associated with the respective types. An update information manager (51) monitors an information update in the information storages (62 to 70) and stores, when an information update is made in the information storages (62 to 70), the part of the updated information in the update information storage (61) as update information associated with the respective types. Further, an information selector (50) extracts the update information stored in the update information storage (61) in time series and outputs them to display them on a screen.

There is provided an electronic device including: a first segment and a second segment linked to each other in a rotationally movable manner; a flexible circuit board installed throughout the first segment and the second segment in interiors of the first segment and the second segment; a loosening portion formed by the flexible circuit board being pushed out while being bent in the second segment; and a support unit configured to maintain a direction of pushing-out of the loosening portion to a fixed direction.


The present invention relates to a method for transferring information from a sender to a recipient during a telephone call between a sender communication apparatus and a recipient communication apparatus. The method comprises detecting (S302), by the recipient communication apparatus, that the recipient is subjected to a noisy environment; converting (S304) a voice message, originating from the senders voice and recorded by the sender communication apparatus, into a text message; and displaying (S306), at a display of the recipient communication apparatus, the text message to the recipient.

There is provided an imaging apparatus including: a determination unit configured to determine presence or absence of an object in front of an imaging lens on the basis of first sensing data; and a decision unit configured to decide a behavior related to imaging processing through the imaging lens, on the basis of a result of the determination by the determination unit.


Patent
Sony Mobile Communications | Date: 2017-09-20

There is provided an image stabilization device including: a control unit configured to perform first camera shake correction processing based on an optical camera shake correction method using a lens and second camera shake correction processing based on an electronic camera shake correction method of cutting out a captured image.


The disclosure relates to a method for providing band scanning prioritization in a mobile communications device, the mobile communications device (100) being associated with a user, the method (200) comprising: retrieving (202), in a communication entity (106) information pertaining to present time and intended location of the user at a specific time from an application entity (104), determining (204), in the communication entity (106), a probable location of the mobile communications device (100) taking into account the information pertaining to present time and intended location of the user at a specific time, and performing in the modem entity (102) and/or the communication entity (106) (208) a band scanning prioritization taking into account the probable location of the mobile communications device (100). The disclosure also relates to a mobile communications device (100).
