in a video, Mel Sampat from Microsoft's Windows Mobile team shows how Windows
Vista Gadget could work in future on Microsoft Windows Mobile devices and that's
definitely something interesting.
Windows Vista Gadgets are mini applications with a variety of possible uses.
They can connect to web services to deliver business data, weather information,
news updates, traffic maps, Internet radio streams, and even slide shows of
online photo albums or -
WebGuide4 Gadget I've recently previewed at the::placeshift - connect to
your Media Center to get a live stream back to your PC.
So far, Gadgets are working with Windows Vista PCs only but as Mel revealed
at the video over at Channel 10, he is currently working on an engine which
could run Windows Vista Gadgets on your Windows Mobile device as well and even
better - to integrate Gadgets into the Homescreen.
No word yet about ETA but the current prototype is already running on a
Windows Mobile 6 updated Wizard.
