A new custom-made application is providing Vodafone customers with a host of widgets, giving them access to the web at a glance. The Vodafone Widget Manager BETA is downloadable free of charge from the Vodafone Live! web portal and will provide users with direct access to all their widgets through the applications folder found on the phone. However, the application has been built on Opera run-time for the S60 platform and will initially only be available on the Nokia N96, N95 8GB, N78 and 6210 handsets.
Launched today, some of the widgets available include Live Scores, Fresh Games, RSS Reader, Weatherbug, Egg Timer, Train Times, Lottery, Sccope, Currency Converter and FHM Hot Babes. Both BBC News, BBC Sport along with Vue Cinema widgets are expected in the near future.
Both Vodafone Widget Manager BETA and individual widgets are available for free, though data charges may apply.
