While Microsoft announced during the last Mobile World Congress Windows Mobile 6.5 as well as Windows Marketplace and My Phone, it seems Microsoft forgot to talk about a Windows Mobile 6.5 feature which surfaced now: Widgets. As an anonymous tipster told us today, Windows Mobile 6.5 will support Widgets which are using the Internet Explorer 6 rendering engine but are running stand-alone without requiring to start Internet Explorer.
As a matter of fact, Widgets - which are a kind of zipped HTML files containing JavaScript and graphics files (similar to Windows Vista Gadgets) - can be launched straight from the Windows Mobile 6.5 start menu (see the MSN Money example bellow):

As said, Microsoft hasn't given any further details yet and therefore it's unclear how Microsoft will use Widgets in Windows Mobile 6.5 but the source is sure it will be a (yet forgotten) standard feature of Windows Mobile 6.5

Cheers ~ Arne
