This solution provides the advantage of a small sized portable radio, combined with the possibility to use the radio in both, the private and conventional mode. The required ergonomic distance between speaker and microphone is fulfilled by the down foldable keypad, which also enables a whisper mode. The space under the keypad might be used for additional keys (as shown in the drawing on next page) intended to use during conversation (e.g. con- trol of voice storage), as well as for a display or other applications.
