At least I have the feeling that widget initiatives like W3C Widgets
http://www.w3.org/TRa/widgets-reqs/ or JIL http://www.jil.org (Verizon
Wireless, Softbank, China Mobile) have a lot more traction with
telecommunication companies. Opera is very active in the space as
well, and BONDI http://bondi.omtp.org/whatisbondi/SUPPORTERS/Home.aspx
looks like a promising approach to drive Widget integration with phone
hardware. Look at the impressive list of supporters:
It's going to be interesting to see if the relatively new mobile HTML5
frameworks like Sencha will be able to compete with established
products and standards in the mobile widget market. Of course, W3C
widgets are HTML+JS+CSS based as well, just packaged into a standard
format with a descriptor file. So you could build a W3C Widget with
Sencha, OpenLaszlo or any simple HTML page you have.
There a many competitors in the industry in Europe - don't know the
U.S. market to well, and I'd say you'd have to partner up with a few
large telcos to get traction in the market. For telcos, it's much
about the ability to create a new mobile app marketplace, independent
of Apple or Google.

>> Having jQTouch run on Android is pretty compelling for mobile developers. Apparently developers are seeing incompatibility in webkit versions across Android devices. I've only done Android on my Nexus One and not any fancy apps, so I haven't seen that personally.
