Nokia introduces developer plug in

Nokia has introduced three time saving mobile development tools for desktop designers and developers of internet content, enabling the quick and easy conversion of standard web code and scripting languages into exciting new mobile applications and services. It also works directly within three of the most popular software development environments on the market today, said Nokia.

The Nokia Web Runtime Extension for Adobe Dreamweaver, Nokia WRT plug in for Microsoft Visual Studio and the newly updated WRT plug in 2.0 for Aptana Studio let large numbers of web developers and designers using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Ajax code and other standards-based technologies immediately extend their existing web content to the mobile channel through the fast and efficient creation of mobile widget applications.

Nokia WRT widgets provide mobile users instant access to customizable information or tools drawn in real-time from the Internet. Popular widgets range from breaking news headlines to stock market tickers, social network status updates, flight arrival schedules, localised daily weather and more.

Nokia’s WRT is built on the same open source, industry standard WebKit project environment used by Web Browser for S60, Nokia’s full HTML browser for the latest devices running on Nokia’s S60 platform. The S60 on Symbian OS accounts for more than 180 million devices cumulatively shipped by S60 licensees, including Nokia, Samsung, Lenovo and LG.

Nokia’s WRT widget plug-ins let web developers and designers working within Dreamweaver, Visual Studio and Eclipse-based Aptana Studio rapidly deliver innovative and feature rich widget-based content to users of tens of millions of supported Nokia devices currently available in markets worldwide.
