Many pager users prefer to remove their pager from their belt when seated at a desk or worktable. For front mounted display pagers, it is convenient if the pager can be placed on the desk surface such that the display may be visible by the user without reorienting the pager. Because liquid crystal displays (LCDs) have a limited range of viewing angles, it is imperative that the pager be positioned such that the users line-of-sight is within this range for the display to be readable. Further, the opti- mal contrast ratio of the LCD occurs within an even smaller angle within the overall viewing angle.
