Widgets, Widgets and more Widgets…

A quick look at our site this week will reveal that Samsung is excited about the possibilities offered by widgets in a mobile context.

Firstly , we released the Beta version of our Samsung Mobile Widget SDK. This is housed in a separate forum on Samsung Mobile Innovator. This area is aimed at both mobile and web developers and is dedicated to Samsung’s widget implementation on the touch Wiz UI. Whether you are a web developer looking to target mobile devices, or a mobile developer keen to explore widgets, we are sure you will find our area useful. Access it at the link below.

Media interest in this is already quite high with articles published in Engadget Mobile, Information Week, CNET and MobileCrunch.

Next, to coincide with the SDK launch we invited our Californian-based members who like caffeine and coding to pull an all-nighter with Samsung Mobile in San Francisco at our first Widget Developer Camp. There are some great prizes up for grabs ($5k each individual category and $20k Best in Show, plus a trip to CTIA to show off your widget), just remember you need to be a CA-local. For more details see our micro-site.

And finally, due to demand from our members, Samsung IQ has been extended for two weeks. This means that the competition remains open until Friday 28th August 2009, giving developers more time to build their Samsung Mobile Widgets and refine their work. For full details, click the link below.

The message clearly - if you’re interested in this technology that combines HTML, CSS and Javascript to create cool UIs there has never been a better time to start coding.
