 Hi,

I have a question for widget support on Android. I found clock in the
android destop, and want to know if it is a widget or application
(Activity)? If it is a widget, what about the widget engine (runing
enviroment) of android?

Thanks

 In my opnion, widget on Android is not truely widget (based on Web
technology and compatible). Android widget just looks like widget, but
developped by JAVA, and there is no running environment (like Google
Gadgets, Nokia WRT, Apple Dashboard, etc) on it now.

I want to know if Google has any plan to transplant Google Gadgets on
Android in recent period? Only if Android has Gadgets can widget run
on Android.

Thanks
