20120039038PORTABLE COMPUTER - A portable computer includes a main body casing including an upper plate and an opening formed on the upper plate; a cover pad which may be coupled to the upper plate and covers the opening, the cover pad having a plate surface and a rear surface; and a touch-pad coupled to the rear surface of the cover pad through the opening, thus protecting the touch-pad and enabling the touch-pad to sense a coordinate touched on the plate surface and generate a position data of a pointer.02-16-2012
20120069516ELECTRONIC APPARATUS - By forming a back wall in a holding member capable of holding a cable connector, an opening portion can be closed by the back wall in the case of producing a notebook computer not having a modular port. Therefore, one holding member can realize a notebook computer having a modular port and a notebook computer not having a modular port. This configuration makes it possible to eliminate the necessity to prepare a lid separately when the notebook computer does not have the modular port and to correspond to a plurality of specifications of communication interfaces with a reduced number of components. The reduction in the number of components reduces the cost of the notebook computer and the number of steps in assembling the notebook computer.03-22-2012
20120300396BATTERY PACK OF HIGH CAPACITY - Disclosed herein is a battery pack including a battery cell array including three or fewer battery cells, each of which has an electrode assembly of a cathode/separator/anode structure disposed in a battery case together with an electrolyte in a sealed state, arranged in the lateral direction, the battery cells having a current capacity of 3 amperes (Ah) or more and being electrically connected in series to each other, a protection circuit module (PCM) connected to the upper end of the battery cell array to control the operation of the battery pack, the protection circuit module including a protection circuit, from which a function to adjust voltage unbalance between the battery cells is removed, and a pack case in which the battery cell array and the protection circuit module are disposed.11-29-2012
20120300395TABLE PC BRACKET - The present invention relates to a support bracket for tablet personal computer (tablet PC), including a support board and a support footing. The support board consists of a backboard, a prop-up member and a plurality of engaging members to support the back of tablet PC. Each engaging member contains a neck and a head. The support footing contains a first supporting plate and a second supporting plate, which form a bend and each having an engaging hole. Each engaging hole has a big hole that enables the head of any aforementioned engaging member to pass through and a small hole that could engage the corresponding neck. When any one of the aforementioned engaging holes engages any one of the aforementioned engaging members through its small hole, while the supporting plate of the other engaging hole is not pressed close to the prop-up member, the tablet PC bracket could be braced on a desktop/ground surface through the supporting plate not pressed close to the prop-up member and the prop-up member.11-29-2012
20120300394PROTECTIVE CASE FOR TABLET COMPUTER - A protective tablet computer case for the burgeoning tablet computer market. The protective case has a cradle and a shock absorbing perimeter bumper. The cradle includes a base, a shallow side wall, and an inwardly projecting flexible lip. They form a cavity of a size to hold a tablet computer. The perimeter bumper includes graspable handles. In one form of the invention, the protective case is generally rectangular in shape with one graspable handle per side. The entire protective case may be injection molded from soft EVA foam. Air gaps may be added between the graspable handles and the cradle. The invention is lightweight, flexible, yet strong and can be readily adapted for school, office, home, laboratory, or construction environments.11-29-2012
20120092827SOLAR NOTEBOOK COMPUTER - A solar notebook computer includes a storage battery and at least one solar panel. The solar panel is connected electronically with said storage battery through a regulated constant current circuit unit, and, the regulated constant current circuit unit is inside of the host of the notebook computer or outside of the notebook computer. Said at least one solar panel is movably set on the casing of the notebook computer through a connecting equipment. The solution is simple, easy to carry, conductive to environmental protection and expands the functions of the notebook computer.04-19-2012
