Nokia is trying to get reluctant users on the Web 2.0 bandwagon with the launch of WidSets, a new site that lets users choose RSS feeds and user-generated content to be sent to their mobils.
A free user account lets users build a Content Library with RSS feeds, blogs, or photo uploading sites that are then “multicasted” to any Java-enabled mobile device.
A Collaborative filter lets the community enrich the Widsets Library by suggesting new sites and content for the user.
WidSets is mobile phone browser-independent, and is optimised for minimal data consumption.
"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", says Dieter May, Vice President and Head of Nokia Emerging Business Unit.
