Presentations from NFC Developer event
held in Helsinki
As you may have already know widgets allow people to personalize Internet content into lightweight Web applications and stay current with the things that matter to them. While widgets have been available on PCs for some time, they bring particular advantages to mobile devices, as mobiles are highly personal and among the few items that we always carry with us.
Web Run-Time is powered by the same feature rich, open-source environment used by the Web Browser for S60, the world's first full HTML browser bringing a desktop-like browsing experience to millions of S60 mobile devices.
Web Run-Time offers numerous possibilities for Web application development.
As the Web Run-Time is built with standard Web technologies, developers can create new innovative widgets and also migrate existing widgets from the desktop to S60 with minimal effort. In the future, widgets will benefit from connecting both to Web 2.0 services, Web content and to the core applications and capabilities of S60, such as phonebook, calendar and GPS.
All the following presentations were videotaped in a developer event held in Nokia HQ in Helsinki, Finlan in the end of October 2007.
