    WRT Widgets - Non-Nokia Distribution Channels ???

    Hi,

    In a presentation given at web 2.0 expo last month (http://www.slideshare.net/petrosoini...ype=powerpoint), slide 16 talks about distribution of widgets through non-Nokia channels.

    One example shown is that of widget aggregators.

    Can anyone tell me how this achieved technically ? Are there web server APIs or similar that allow access to the Nokia WRT gallery ? What sort of commercial relationship must be put in place ?

    Thanks,

    Re: WRT Widgets - Non-Nokia Distribution Channels ???

    Hi,

    distributing a WRT widget is actually really simple: it is enough to place the packed widget (so, the WGZ file) on a public server, and point a mobile browser to its URL. Usually aggregators work this way (e.g.: Plusmo).

    About commercial relationships with Nokia to access and distribute their own widgets gallery, I have no related info
