Bitstream Set To Unveil Widgets For Bolt Mobile BrowserBitstream Inc today announced that the forthcoming version of its BOLT mobile browser will include the ability to run widgets.

The new BOLT Widgets capability will be introduced in beta as part of the forthcoming 1.7 version of BOLT, to be released to the public at Mobile World Congress on February 15, 2010.

BOLT users will be able to discover, select and install specific applications through the BOLT Widget Gallery.  BOLT will display an iconic list of all installed apps, allowing users to quickly find and use them directly within BOLT.

BOLT is a server assisted browser that has been shown to have the most accurate page rendering of any mobile browser in its class, receiving a perfect 100 percent in the Acid3 page rendering test. Using this same cloud computing technology to support Web applications allows BOLT to offer increased functionality to the broad spectrum of devices BOLT already runs on, even the most basic mobile phones.

Sampo Kaasila, vice president of research and development at Bitstream quoted “As many of the recent mobile and wireless trade shows have demonstrated, mobile applications are part of the mainstream mobile experience  however, the vast majority of phones in use today are ‘feature phones’ not smartphones.  Unfortunately for the users of these billions of feature phones, it isn’t easy to find, install and run mobile applications.  By adding Web apps to BOLT, Bitstream is not only improving the usability of our mobile browser, we are also making it possible for literally billions of people to partake in the mobile apps revolution.”
