While I'm a big fan of Windows Vista's Sidebar, I haven't found too many good gadgets to be used with it and I always hoped, Microsoft would deliver some more gadgets by itself, to promote Windows Vista Sidebar and - even more important - to unify the different technologies, where it makes sense. Now, interesting enough, it seems Nokia picked-up exactly this idea and released "Nokia Text Messenger" for Windows Vista Sidebar.
Nokia Text Messenger fetches you the latest text messages from your connected Nokia device. As a gadget, designed for Windows Vista, Nokia Text Messenger comes in two different sizes and you can place it in your Windows Sidebar or you can put it, in a slightly larger size, floating on your desktop.

But Nokia Text Messenger isn't pulling received SMS from the connected device only, no - you can also send test messages, straight from your Windows Vista PC, using this Sidebar gadget - as long as a Nokia mobile phone is connected to your PC.

Now that's a useful idea how to bring both - the PC and a smartphone together to get most of both world. I definitely wonder when Microsoft will work on a deeper and better convergence of its technologies as well? Is it just me or is it true, that Nokia always beets Microsoft on its own playground - as long as it isn't business (aka Microsoft Exchange) related?

Cheers ~ Arne

In terms of consumer friendliness, Windows Mobile is so boring.
Hope it will gets better with Windows Mobile 6.1 or 7. As of now, Nokia constantly shows Microsoft how to be ahead!
