Webwag Drives the First Widgets Into Cars and Portable Navigation Devices

    Webwag Launches the First Widgets for the Automotive Industry

    PARIS, France, Feb. 11 /CNW/ - Webwag, the France-based expert in mobile
Internet widgets, announced they have created the first widgets for the
automotive industry. This solution allows access to the Internet from the
multifunction screen of a car or from any portable Portable Navigation Device
(PND)! Already some car and PND manufacturers are working on the integration
of widgets into their products. This widgets platform is available to of the
automotive business players.

    With these widgets, users will embark their preferred Internet services
in their car or onto their PND, using an interface adapted to the ergonomics
of embedded screens: weather forecast, news (complete RSS reader), emails,
Location-Based guides, photos stored on online services, social networks and
other services to be created as a widget. Although devices are increasingly
convergent, PNDs' user interfaces become even more complicated. Therefore
Webwag designed a simple and user-friendly solution to access the Internet,
which is the most advanced in the market and the most suited offer to the
automotive industry and PNDs.
    The safety of users is key
    Not being distracted by the Internet while driving was a concern for
Webwag when they designed the widgets platform. The safety took an important
part in the development process. Thus, the Webwag's widget engine is
continuously connected to the vehicle's position and speed data. The widgets
are accordingly and instantly changed to synthesize information, display it
larger or simply turn it off.
    "The simplicity of widgets is perfectly suited to the constraints of PNDs
and cars. With this offer, Webwag is pursuing its convergent strategy in
Internet services by making them accessible on new connected mobile screens."
declared Florent Pitoun, CEO and co-founder of Webwag.
