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.

Sounds Pimp

Cant wait for the touch pro2 🤤
I can't either! I just hope Sprint gets it! I've grown tired of my original TOUCH. I've "touched" the hell out of it - it doesn't thrill me as it once did 😛 I get that way every two years or so.

I hope this does not eliminate...

...the task manager! This is a feature that tends to aggravate the Anti- WinMo individuals but business people love. One of the key assets of this feature is having the ability to talk to a client, run several different applications at the same time that have to do with that particular client. So I then can toggle back and forth to reference all their info on the fly without it closing and having to reopen it. Eliminating this feature would be a drastic cost to the business person that relies on this feature.

I have a dash with windows mobile and i love it, just wish it had more of that vista 64 bit smoothness of graphics feeling to it, combined with the design of the dash it would be perfect, but then the dash's memory wouldn't be able to handle the power needed to run those graphics, bit of a quandary 😕 🤣
