Nokia rolling WidSets into Ovi Store

Chris Ziegler

If you want to talk widgets, Nokia's been rocking its Java-based, platform-agnostic WidSets project for years now, offering a wide variety of bite-sized apps, games, and feeds that work on a whole bunch of phones from all sorts of manufacturers. It's not going away, but Nokia has now announced that the initiative is being rolled into the Ovi Store alongside MOSH (and the notorious Download! app S60 owners are all too familiar with). It makes a lot of sense for Nokia to finally be consolidating a lot of its offerings into Ovi, but here's our concern: with WidSets going into the Nokia-centric Ovi ecosystem, will it entirely lose the platform independence that helped make it great?
