Patent Application Titled "Pocket Case for Mobile Communications Devices Combined with Carrying Compartment for Credit Card Sized Items" Published Online

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Politics & Government Week -- According to news reporting originating from Washington, D.C., by VerticalNews journalists, a patent application by the inventors Altschul, Matthew Timothy (Austin, TX); Martin, Michael (Portland, OR); Dolin, Scott (San Diego, CA), filed on May 7, 2013, was made available online on June 5, 2014.

The assignee for this patent application is Cm4.

Reporters obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: "As communications devices become more capable of handling multiple tasks, there is less of a need for people to carry as many items with them on-the-go, leading to a minimization trend. This trend is particularly apparent in the transition from simple cell phones to newer generations of cell phones integrating the calling function with e-mail, mobile apps, movie viewing, GPS navigation, calendar and clock functions, etc. In addition, the sizes and shapes of modern cell phones are much more compact than in the past, now approaching the size of other items commonly carried on-the-go, such as credit cards, driver licenses, paper money, etc.

"To facilitate convenient carrying of this smaller number of items, there is a need for a single carrying device which is capable of carrying both the mobile communications devices (e.g., cellular phones) or PDAs, along with the carrying of these miscellaneous other items, such as money and credit-card sized items in a single convenient pocket case."

In addition to obtaining background information on this patent application, VerticalNews editors also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent application: "An object of the invention is to provide a structure by which a user may carry and operate a mobile communications device and (optionally) one or more credit card sized items in a single pocket case.

"A preferred embodiment in accordance with the invention employs case configured to hold a mobile communications device, wherein the case is configured with various buttons and holes to provide access to the control buttons, jacks, lenses, and other external connections on the mobile communications device. Adhered to the case is a pocket configured to securely hold one or more credit card sized items such as credit cards, folded paper money, a driver license, etc. In a preferred embodiment, a user can operate the mobile communications device while the device is disposed within the case.
