Nokia today announced the release of WidSets, a phone manufacturer independent Web 2.0 service. The service automatically multicasts preferred RSS feeds and user generated content.
Dieter May, the Vice President and Head of Nokia Emerging Business Unit said in a statement on the new technology: Immediate access to information is expected by people today, thus we wanted to make it easy for everybody, from an individual blogger to a web service provider, to automatically have mobile access to website content,
Users of WidSets can build a Content Library, in which they can freely choose from â€œRSS feeds to blog posts to photo uploading sites that are multicasted to any new generation Javaâ„¢ enabled mobile devices,â€ according to the statement.
May also said: We wanted WidSets to be fun to use, so we based the user interface on great looking and dynamic mini applications called widgets that automatically receive updates from websites that people normally visit several times a day,
