T-Mobile last week announced to work with Opera Software to make its web'n'walk even more intuitive and bringing the user even closer to the World Wide Web. In future, you will be able to access your personal favorite sites more easily and quickly than ever from your mobile phone by simply selecting the corresponding widget, an active icon, from the standard display. The web'n'walk widgets can be quickly and easily set up according to personal preferences for mobile surfing. In order to enable this, T-Mobile is providing a gallery, initially with approximately 40 widgets for popular websites. It will soon be possible for other users and providers to create additional widgets via an open platform.

These widgets will then be available to all web'n'walk widget users, regardless of which handset they use. However, it looks like the initial web'n'walk widget handsets will be TouchFLO 3D-powered Windows Mobile smartphones since it looks like Opera widgets will become part of the TouchFLO 3D ribbon:

While the web'n'walk widget looks like today's TouchFLO 3D Programs list, it has an interactive element. In case of important information on a personalized Internet sites, such as the arrival of an eBay notification, the widget indicates the new status, with users able to respond directly. You are thus informed of bids in online auctions or new news items as they occur, even on the move.

The web'n'walk widgets thus complement the browser-based web'n'walk homepage, which T-Mobile updates on a continual basis. T-Mobile plans to launch the web'n'walk widgets by the end of the year, initially for touch-screen Windows Mobile smartphones such as the MDA compact IV and MDA Vario IV. Later on, widgets will then be available to all web'n'walk widget users, regardless of which handset they use.

Cheers ~ Arne

Absolutely useless, and only there to serve T-M!

There are already a dozen tools out there, even free ones, which enable you to put ANY links - not only internet links but also system links like files and programs - onto your today screen, since years!

Funny ... all those humble attempts to fully bind the user/customer to the company.
