Patent application serial number 705876 has not been assigned to a company or institution.
The following quote was obtained by the news editors from the background information supplied by the inventors: "Embodiments relate to a method for managing files and a mobile device using same.
"A mobile device may refer to a handheld, portable, or tablet computer device configured to perform one or more of video calls, voice calls, internet browsing and searches, and e-reading, and the mobile device may be capable of executing a variety of application programs. The mobile device may have a liquid crystal display ('LCD') screen or may have an e-ink screen. A user may install application programs, which may be referred to as 'apps', on the mobile device for execution.
"The application program (or app) is a program developed for resolving a specific task or performing a specific operation, and may process data such as characters, images, sound, and/or video. In an operating system of a mobile device, there is no system for separately managing content files stored in a mobile device, unlike in Personal Computers (PCs). Accordingly, in order to manage content files, an additional application program may be downloaded and executed to manage content resources having a common Multipurpose Internet Main Extension (MIME) type. A file management application program may be downloaded from a web to manage files, which are structured in an internal/external file system.
"However, if files are managed in the above manner, a linkage application program is executed with a mutual calling convention for data sharing during file attachment or transmission in order to configure its own list. Additionally, since file selection is only possible in the same category in a categorized folder structure, there are limitations in selecting various content files with uncommon MIME types.
"While Windows or Linux of a general PC may allow a user to browse files for each category with a storage folder or a display method of a virtual folder concept, this is only a file displaying method, and provides only a reconfiguration method by filtering categories and metadata."
In addition to the background information obtained for this patent application, VerticalNews journalists also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent application: "Exemplary embodiments of the present invention provide a method for file management and a mobile device using same.
"Additional features of the invention will be set forth in the description which follows, and in part will be apparent from the description, or may be learned by practice of the invention.
"Exemplary embodiments of the present invention provide a method for managing files in a mobile terminal, including executing a container configuration mode, receiving a container selection of a target container to be associated with a first content file and a second content file, retrieving information corresponding to the first content file and information corresponding to the second content file, and storing the information corresponding to the first content file and the information corresponding to the second content file in a content file list corresponding to the target container.
