    WRT API clarification

    Can anyone clarify what has and what has not been implemented in the Nokia Web RunTime (WRT) environment. Currently it is unclear since in April 2008 Nokia announced that the WRT (and therefore widgets) will have access to features previously only available to applications written in Symbian C++, such as GPS data. Here is an extract from their April 2008 press release:

    "S60 enables the development of exciting new services and mash-ups by combining the power of the Web with power of the S60 platform. For example, a weather widget can now access the user's current location via the built-in GPS and in just a moment display the latest weather forecasts for that location."

    Here is the press release:
    http://www.nokia.com/A4136001?newsid=1212541

    However there is no public documentation reflecting this new WRT functionality. The only documentation currently available (that I can find) is:

    http://www.forum.nokia.com/document/...opers_Library/

    This documentation makes no mention of any methods for accessing GPS data through a JavaScript API. Is this documentation old?

    This is PR for the next version of WRT (2) that is not yet publicly available. Only WRT (1) is available at this time.

    Re: WRT API clarification

    Hi hp3, thanks for your reply. I guess Nokia should attempt to inject a little more clarity in their press releases

    Can anyone clarify when the next WRT will be available?

    Many thanks,
    Jack

    Re: WRT API clarification

    I think someone (at Nokia) should give a hint when WRT(2) will be available. It was announced in April, and now we are (almost) in September.

    Is there any information of the date this will be available?
