Opera today announced that Opera Widgets will now be available on nearly any mobile phone.
The new widgets platform takes advantage of Opera?s recently announced cross-platform UI framework. This framework was developed to help operators and manufacturers distribute a single browser UI across a wide range of devices. Similarly, a singular Opera Widgets experience can now be developed and deployed on nearly any platform.
Opera?s Mini-based Widgets platform includes the same UI and feature set as the Opera Mobile Widgets Manager. Opera Mini?s server-side rendering allows nearly any mobile phone to run a Web browser and now, widgets.
