Microsoft recently confirmed that Windows Mobile 6.5 will have access to what Microsoft is calling Windows Mobile Widgets. The widgets will appear to function just as full applications do, and will have their own icons in Windows Mobile menus and access to web content. The widgets will be powered, in part, by the new Mobile Internet Explorer 6, which will give them access to Flash and ActiveX controls. The widgets will also have control of the SK menu bar. According to Microsoft, the widgets can be written with standard web technologies, such as HTML, CSS, AJAX, and JavaScript. Microsoft will also be using some of the newer standards drafted by the W3C for developing mobile widgets.
