Nokia Launches WidSets, Boosting Mobile Web 2.0 Services

Nokia launched WidSets, a phone manufacturer- independent Web 2.0 service, that automatically multicasts preferred RSS feeds and user-generated content.

With WidSets, Nokia highlights the power behind the evolution of Web 2.0 - the people, the content they produce and the social networks dynamics, facilitating how mobility enhances Web 2.0's use and enjoyment.

WidSets allows users to build a Content Library, freely choosing from RSS feeds to blog posts to photo uploading sites that are multicasted to any new generation Java enabled mobile devices.

WidSets keeps such content updated and forms a symbiotic relationship with the web, enabling both mediums to work as one. It is mobile phone browser-independent and comes to market with a vast array of features that truly put the user in the driving seat.

Its templates allow users to include their own websites or blogs, for their own private use or that of others they choose. Collaborative filtering allows the community to enrich the Widsets Library by providing suggestions for new content that a user did not know about.

The User Interface uses a process of "choose and set" that makes Widsets operative within seconds. Best of all, signing up to WidSets is free of charge and using WidSets is optimised for minimal data consumption.
