T-Mobile and Nokia Integrate Widget Stores

T-Mobile and Nokia collaborate to open up an integrated marketplace for mobile content and Internet services

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

T-Mobile’s web’n’walk widget platform will be supported on Series 40 based feature phones, the highest selling devices in Europe to date. A Java based widget client makes it possible for both offerings to co-exist.

This co-operation takes the new web’n’walk widget platform into the mass market and opens up the long tail of applications and services from Nokia’s Ovi Store and T-Mobile’s widget gallery.

“T-Mobile and Nokia share a joint vision of offering an unparalleled mobile Internet experience to its customers. The co-existence of our widget gallery with Nokia’s Ovi Store ensures customers have access to an extensive range of interesting and relevant Internet services that they can customize according to their personal preferences, said Rainer Deutschmann, Senior Vice President, Mobile Internet at T-Mobile International.

“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.”

T-Mobile’s next release of web’n’walk featuring the new widget platform, announced today, brings customers even closer to their Internet. Launching in spring it will provide customers with fast access to their favourite Internet services through widgets and applications directly from their idle screen.
