A portable telephone has a telephone body (1) with a first liquid crystal display (2) formed on the frontal face of the telephone body, a swingable plate (4) connected by a hinge (3) to one of lateral edges of said body (1), and a second liquid crystal display (5) formed in and disposed on the swingable plate (4). The second crystal display (5) will be at its exposed position to face backwards when the plate (4) is at its closed position folded back in a close contact with the rear face of the telephone body (1), and the swingable plate (4) can pivot forwards so that the second display (5) faces the same direction as the first display (2). The portable telephone of the invention can be used as it is to serve as an ordinary portable telephone, with its main liquid crystal display (2), but its swingable plate folded back on the back of its body may be put into a reversed position so that its supplementary display cooperates with the main display to form an enlarged area for displaying any information of a large volume such as obtained through INTERNET or the like.
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.
