Patent 6795429 Issued on September 21, 2004. Estimated Expiration Date: September 27, 2019. Estimated Expiration Date is calculated based on simple USPTO term provisions. It does not account for terminal disclaimers, term adjustments, failure to pay maintenance fees, or other factors which might affect the term of a patent.
A system and method for associating notes to a call with a portable information device, such as a personal digital assistant. In one embodiment, notes taken during a call are associated with information about the call, such as parties to the call, the date and time, and the subject matter of the call. Notes taken may include user input or PID data communicated across a telephony network, for example. In one embodiment, a portable information device links to a data network telephone to initiate a phone call. Information about the phone call is stored with notes taken to allow for later retrieval.
