Users of newer high-end mobile smartphones and feature phones are taking software like widgets that allow you to access web information and applications with one or two clicks for granted. These applications are a big part of the feature set for more expensive mobile phones in America.

The ability to quickly access information from the web is important for driving the adoption of data services. A company called Myriad has announced a new mobile widget solution for very low cost mobile phones aimed at developing countries.

The software will allow phones sold in markets like India for as little as $10 or $15 to feature widgets for accessing things like weather, horoscopes, sports scores and more on the screen of the phone. The software can connect to the Internet via different networks like 3G, GPRS, SMs, and USSD.
