1. An information processing method applied to an electronic device comprising a touch sensitive unit and a display unit separated from each other, the electronic device comprising at least a first display mode, which is a traditional display mode suitable for the display unit, and a second display mode suitable for the touch sensitive unit, the method comprising:
acquiring a display mode of the display unit according to whether an operating system operating in the electric device is an operating system suitable for the touch sensitive unit, and/or according to whether an application is operating in the electronic device, at a first timing after the electronic device is turned on;
detecting whether the display mode is the second display mode or not according to the operating system or the application;
acquiring coordinates of each point of N points of the display unit and generating a first control instruction, when the display mode is the second display mode, wherein N is an integer above 2; and
performing the first control instruction, to correspond the coordinates of the each point of the N points to coordinates of each touch sensitive point of the touch sensitive unit,
wherein, after the step of detecting whether the display mode is the second display mode or not, the method further comprising:
acquiring a first location of a cursor on the display unit when the display mode is the first display mode;
acquiring a movement track parameter indicating the movement on the touch sensitive unit of an operating object corresponding to the electronic device;
acquiring a second location of the cursor on the display unit based on the first location and the movement track parameter; and
adjusting the cursor from the first location to the second location;
wherein, after the step of performing the first control instruction, to correspond the coordinates of the each point of the N points to coordinates of each touch sensitive point of the touch sensitive unit, the method further comprises:
detecting whether a first adjustment instruction for adjusting display mode of the display unit is received or not, at a second timing after the first timing; and
adjusting the display unit from the second display mode to the first display mode, when the first adjustment instruction is received,
wherein, after the step of performing the first control instruction, to correspond the coordinates of the each point of the N points to coordinates of each touch sensitive point of the touch sensitive unit, the method further comprising:
acquiring M first touch sensitive points out of the N touch sensitive points of the touch sensitive unit by a first operating object corresponding to the electronic device, wherein, M is an integer no less than 1 and larger than N;
acquiring J points on the display unit corresponding to each touch sensitive point of the M first touch sensitive points, based on the M first touch sensitive points, wherein, J is equal to M; and
allocating a cursor at the location of each point of the J points.
