BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION 1. Field of the Invention The present invention relates to a
portable terminal such as a portable telephone or a PDA (Personal Digital Assistant: portable
information terminal) capable of receiving distribution of contents such as video and audio.
[0002]
2. Description of the Related Art In recent years, mobile terminals such as mobile phones have
become able to receive distribution of contents such as video and audio such as music from the
center, and not only as calls but also as players Are also known to have the function of
[0003]
As an example, in the portable telephone described in Japanese Patent Application Laid-Open No.
2001-177609, the content of the musical tone is downloaded from the center, and stereo sound
reproduction can be performed by the right speaker and the left speaker.
That is, as shown in FIG. 16A, on the front part where the display screen 61 of the mobile phone
60 is provided, the speaker part 62 is provided above the display screen 61. As shown in FIG.
16B, two speakers 63 and 64 are provided. The speakers 63 and 64 are arranged close to each

As described above, by providing two speakers 63 and 64, one of which is the left speaker and
the other of which is the right speaker, stereo sound is output from the speaker section 62.
[0005]
By the way, when it becomes possible to receive the delivery of video content such as moving
pictures by a portable terminal such as a portable telephone or a PDA, the aspect ratio 16: may
be selected depending on the type of the content. There is also an image of a horizontally long
screen such as 9.
The display screen of the mobile phone is usually in the form of a vertically long rectangular
shape. When a horizontally long video screen is displayed on such a display screen, it becomes a
very reduced video screen and is difficult to see. Therefore, when such a horizontally long video
screen is displayed, such a video screen may be displayed so that the display screen of the mobile
phone can be viewed sideways.

However, even in the portable telephone in which the orientation of the display screen can be
changed as described above, by providing two speakers as in the portable telephone described in
the above-mentioned Japanese Patent Laid-Open No. 2001-177609, a stereo system can be
provided. Although it becomes possible to listen to the audio, if the two speakers are arranged as
described above, when the display screen is used sideways, the two speakers are arranged in the
vertical direction. Will not be able to listen in stereo. Of course, another pair of speakers different
in arrangement direction from the pair of speakers is newly added, and the pair of speakers can
be switched and used according to the orientation when the display screen is used. Therefore, in
any case, it becomes possible to listen to the sound in stereo, but it is very difficult to increase
the number of speakers where there is almost no space as in a mobile phone, and The cost will
be increased by increasing the number of parts and increasing the size of the telephone.
[0007]
The same is true for PDAs.

[0008]
The object of the present invention is to solve such a problem, to suppress an increase in the
number of speakers, and to make it possible to favorably listen to stereo sound regardless of the
orientation of the display screen. It is to provide.
[0009]
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION In order to achieve the above object, according to the present
invention, a speaker is provided for each area in a case close to two opposing corner portions of
a display screen to reproduce stereo sound. The speaker of this invention is configured to
reproduce one channel of stereo sound from one of the speakers for stereo sound reproduction
and to reproduce the other channel of stereo sound from the other.
[0010]
In addition, depending on whether the display screen is used vertically or horizontally, the
speakers for reproducing the respective channels of the stereo audio are switched to be always
arranged on the right side as viewed from the display screen. The right channel is reproduced by
the speaker, and the left channel is reproduced by the speaker disposed on the left side.
