  • [0011]
    The entertainment and communication device 100 of the present invention is provided with a socket 120 for receiving a replaceable memory card 200. The opening for the socket 120 may be provided on the side of the device 100, as shown at 120A, or at one end of the device 100, as shown at 120B, or both. The memory card 200 is provided with electrical contacts 201 (see Fig. 2) which are adapted to engage corresponding electrical contacts (not shown) in the socket 120, which contacts in turn are connected to the microprocessor 112 for communication between the replaceable memory card 200 and the microprocessor 112. The memory card 200 may be a prerecorded card or a flash (blank) card suitable for recording data from the microprocessor 112. By appropriately operating the cellphone to connect to or access the Internet and then operating the memory card control buttons 202, data from the Internet may be recorded on the replaceable memory card 200, such as musical performances, images (still or moving), written text or the like (hereinafter referred to as “data”). In addition to the audio data, the musical performance data from the Internet may include images of the performers or the like, and/or the words of the musical performance.

  • [0012]
    The memory card 200 is preferably of a high memory capacity and a size to fit substantially inside the housing of the device 100 so as not to protrude therefrom and yet be of substantially the full width of the device 100 to maximize the memory capacity of the card 200 substantially beyond the memory capacity of conventional prerecorded memory cards, such as for MP3 players. Of course, the width of the device 100 is limited from a practical standpoint to a width that is comfortable in the palm of an adult person’s hand for use as a telephone. Thus, as a practical matter, the width of the memory card is limited to about 1 ½” to 2”. Similarly, the overall size of the device 100 must be sufficiently small to be comfortably carried in a pocket or purse to be most practical. Further, while the thickness of the card 200 may be increased somewhat for increasing the memory capacity there is also a practical limit to that increased thickness so that the thickness of the device 100 does not become excessive, but it is contemplated that memory cards 200 of about twice the thickness may be provided and interchangeably installed in the socket 120 for at least doubling the memory capacity or separate sockets, such as sockets 120A and 120B, may be provided for accommodating memory cards 200 of different thicknesses. Still further, the length of the device 100 is limited to a practical length and, therefore, the vertical length of the card is similarly limited. The card 200 and socket 120 may be provided with matching non-symmetrical shapes, grooves, ridges or the like for requiring the card 200 to be inserted into the socket in the correct orientation, such as the cutoff corner of card 200 shown in Fig. 1 (lower left) and Fig. 2 (lower right). The device 100 may also be provided with an integral image and audio storage memory 116 connected to the microprocessor for temporary or permanent storage of data, in addition to data storage on cards 200, and the data stored on memory 116 may be reproduced in the same manner as from replaceable memory cards 200.
  • [0013]
    Referring more particularly to Figs. 3 and 4, a latching device, generally designated 150, is shown for retaining the replaceable memory card 200 in the socket 120A and for facilitating the removal of the memory card 200 from the socket 120A. The latching device 150 includes a lever 152 pivotally connected at 154 to the back of the housing of the device 100, with a tab 156 extending along the side of the device and over a portion of the socket 120A in the closed position. A pin 158 extends inwardly from the lever 152 and engages a hole 204 in the memory card 200. When the latching device 150 is pivoted to the open position shown in dashed lines in Fig 4, the memory card 200 may be readily removed from socket 120A by placing a finger on the portion of the card 200 exposed by opening the latching device 150 or by engaging the hole 204 with a finger nail or a pointed implement, such as a pencil or pen. Further, the pin 158 and hole can be sized and relatively positioned such that the pin 158 urges the card 200 outwardly upon opening the latching device. Still further, the socket 120A may be provided with a spring for urging the card 200 outwardly as soon as the card is unlatched. Of course either the tab 156 or pin 158 may be omitted since the other (pin or tab, respectively) will retain the card 200 in the socket 120A. The latching device 150 may be of a width to only cover a portion of the socket 120A, as shown, or of a width to cover the entire socket (not shown).
  • [0014]
    Since the device 100 can be wirelessly connected to the internet, it is also possible to use the device 100 for any other Internet functions, such as sending and receiving e-mail, conducting ebusiness, etc. Further, in view of the recording capability of the device 100, the telephone conversations on the cellphone may be selectively recorded (one or both sides) and the device can be used for any sound recording, such as for dictation or face-to-face conversations or conferences. Still further, the microprocessor 112 includes means for automatically interrupting the playing of any musical performance being reproduced on the device 100 when a telephone call is placed or received on the cellphone until the call is completed.
  • [0015]
    All of the aforedescribed functions and those described hereinafter are powered by a battery means (not shown) in the device 100 which preferably is a single rechargeable battery.
  • [0016]
    The entertainment and communication device 100 is also provided with a computer jack 124 connected to the microprocessor for selectively connecting the device 100 directly to a computer, radio, television or CD, DVD, VCR, tape or phonograph record player (not shown) by a hard wire (not shown) for downloading and uploading (where appropriate) to and from the replaceable memory card 200 or fixed memory 116 in the device 100.
  • [0017]
    The entertainment and communication device 100 is also provided with various other features for the personal entertainment, communication, security, safety and the like of the person at all times that the person has the device 100 with him or her. A video camera 102 is connected through an image signal processing section 107 to the microprocessor 112 and the camera operation is controlled by button 105, whereby images may be displayed on the panel 104, recorded on either the integral memory 116 or the replaceable memory card 200, or transmitted by the cellphone to a remote telephone which may be located at a police station, security office, one’s own personal computer or the like. The video camera 102 is preferably a digital camera for electronically capturing images, either still or moving, for minimizing the size and battery power requirements, but also may be an analog type camera. Similarly, an infrared night vision camera 106 may be provided and connected to the microprocessor 112 through an infrared image processing section 109 to record or transmit images in the same manner as video camera 102, and a light sensor 118 is connected to the microprocessor 112 for automatically selecting the operation of the night vision 106 when the ambient light is at a very low level. Cameras 102 and 106 will be referred to generically as a “camera”. The microphone 103 may also be activated manually or automatically by the microprocessor 112 when either of the cameras 102 or 106 are activated for recording and/or transmitting sounds within the range of the device 100 synchronously with the recording or transmission of images by one of the cameras.
  • [0018]
    The entertainment and communication device also includes various emergency features for use by the person carrying the device. An alarm button 123 is provided and may be activated to produce an audible alarm from the speaker 125 for dissuading an attacker or intruder or activating a silent alarm whereby the cellphone is automatically operated to communicate the emergency condition to a remote telephone, such as by dialing “911” or a private security telephone number or the like. Similarly, one or more sensors 110, such as motion, infrared, ultrasonic, acceleration, sound, light, heat, smoke, carbon monoxide, poisonous gas or the like sensors, are provided with the device 100 and selectively activated for providing either an audible or silent alarm, similar to the functions of the panic alarm button 123 but without requiring operator activation, and the sensors 110 are connected through the sensor reading section 111 to the microprocessor 112 for using any of the functions of the device 100. For example, with the acceleration sensor of sensors 110 activated while a person has the device 100 in an automobile, the sudden deceleration of the automobile in an accident condition would be sensed by the acceleration sensor to cause the microprocessor 112 to dial an appropriate telephone number stored in the dialing memory 113, such as a “911” or a vehicle rescue number, and transmit the emergency as well as the location of the device 100 as determined by a global positioning satellite (GPS) reading section 117 provided with the device, which GPS reading section 117 may also be activated by the panic alarm 123. Further, if the motion sensor or similar sensors 110 are activated and the device 100 is appropriately positioned, for example in a hotel room, the motion and/or presence of an intruder will be sensed and communicated through the sensor reading section 111 to the microprocessor 112 to activate any desired function, such as an audible alarm from the speaker 125, an automatic dialing of a “911” number, operation of electronic camera 102 or infrared camera 106, operation of the microphone 103, operation of the GPS reading section 117 or the like. Similar functions can be performed by the device 100 when any of the other sensors are activated to sense a particular condition, such as heat, smoke, carbon monoxide, poisonous gas or the like.
  • [0019]
    Thus, by this invention a palm-sized device provides wireless communication with the Internet for downloading musical and visual entertainment onto a high capacity memory card that is replaceable with other prerecorded or downloaded memory cards, and numerous other communication, security, safety and similar functions are selectively available to the user.
