Executive Summary

Increasingly, many Smartphones (i.e., Apple iPhone, Google Android, PalmPre, Blackberry Storm and Bold, and Nokia S60) today are equipped with standards-based Web browsers that facilitate access to and interaction with the Web. In some cases, like Nokia S60 series, the Smartphones add a web application run-time environment that runs widgets. Like the desktop widgets, Web-based mobile widgets are lightweight mobile applications developed with standards-based Web technologies, such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and AJAX. They serve as front ends to Web 2.0 services or Internet content. Newer versions of the S60 web run-time will also have access to platform resources and capabilities that enable more personal and context-aware widgets.
