A hands-free device (1) that is linked via a short range radio frequency (RF) communications link (2) to a mobile communications device (3) supports and provides a number of functions, such as user actions and internal events, such as incoming calls. The user operable functions of the hands-free device (1) are arranged in a hierarchical menu structure that a user can navigate through and around and select from using a user operable input means of the hands-free device (1). Each function or option that can be selected in the menu structure has associated with it a spoken prompt that is automatically provided to the user via the hands-free device (1) when that function is reached in the menu structure.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
