T-Mobile and Nokia to team-up on widgets

Nokia and T-Mobile have announced plans to jointly promote their respective offering for widgets, applications and other content to "provide customers with easy access to a vast range of Internet services".

Customers can browse and download widgets from both the T-Mobile widget gallery and Nokia's Ovi Store using T-Mobile's web'n'walk widget platform.

The integrated marketplace will be available during the second half 2009 on mass market Nokia Series 40 platform based phones.

"Nokia Series 40 devices offer a great platform to deliver the Ovi Store experience and once the Ovi Store is available, you'll be able to enjoy the most relevant content from the people and places that matter to you", said Urpo Karjalainen, senior vice president, operator channels, at Nokia.

"We are excited to be partnering with T-Mobile on the most compelling mobile Internet experience for mass market yet".
