Forum Nokia opens doors to WidSets developer community

New developer offering makes creating, distributing innovative widgets easier and faster

Espoo, Finland, (PresseBox) - WidSets, a mobile content consumption, creation and sharing service is getting a boost from Forum Nokia, Nokia's global developer program. Developers can easily develop widgets for WidSets and instantly make them available for download to a rapidly growing user base. WidSets work on more than 300 mobile device models currently supporting MIDP 2.0, including some 500 million Series 40 and S60 devices worldwide. Developers can visit http://forum.nokia.com/widsets to get started.

Forum Nokia has launched a comprehensive developer offering for WidSets to arm developers with the tools and technologies needed to take advantage of this unique opportunity for immediate visability to a content hungry community. At forum.nokia.com/widsets, developers will have access to WidSets documentation, the WidSets SDK and be able to view examples of widgets created through WidSets, plus the ability to contribute to articles and receive feedback from the world's largest mobile developer community.

"The Forum Nokia developer community welcomes WidSets with open arms," said Tom Libretto, vice president, Forum Nokia. "Our developers consistently create innovative applications and services. With the addition of the WidSets developer offering, they will now have the ability to easily create and publish widgets through WidSets and collaborate with other developers while doing so."

As developers publish new WidSets widgets directly to an already extensive widget library, consumers gain access to popular Web content optimized for mobile including news feeds, multiplayer games and a large variety of user-generated content. A renewed My Profile widget makes it easy for consumers to share their favorite WidSets content, as well as follow and comment on the content other WidSets members are enjoying. Consumers can visit widsets.mobi from their mobile device to download the latest widgets.
