Abstract

Predicted contacts based on the sequence of letters you enter With this idea, a list of pre-entered contacts will show up in one’s “To:” field of an email, according to the sequence of letters entered by the user. The current typical behavior is: With the cursor in the To: field. Then, using the keypad, either type in the recipient’s address or press the Trackwheel, choose “Add to:” from the menu to select a name from one’s address book. The new behavior is: when entering the address, if the name matches one in the user’s address book, a list of names which match the sequence of the letters entered will appear as choices. In this “contact listing,” the user will scroll to and click on the contact to whom the message is to be sent. This could also work for email addresses.
