Widgets will allow S60 users to keep up to date in real time with their favorite Internet sites and data sources. For example, the WeatherBug widget, shown above, tracks weather in the user’s area, while a Reuters widget might keep a list of current headlines at the user’s fingertips. In the future, widgets will also be able to interact with the core S60 applications, such as the contacts and calendar.
The Web Run-Time and Widget tools and documentation will be available to developers starting in Q3 of this year. We should start seeing S60 3rd Edition FP2 handset coming onto market in Q1 of next year.
