Jason sent us a link to a post he wrote up that includes a few slides from an AT&T developer webcast. The slides show some of the updates coming to the BlackBerry Widget SDK 1.1 as well as the web plug-ins (Eclipse and Visual Studio) which will be updated to version 2.5.
Widgets are being pushed very heavily in BlackBerry 6 and we’re going to see a great deal of news in the coming months about them. RIM is looking to attract web developers to the platform in order to address the issues that BlackBerry is a difficult platform to develop for and the need for more apps. Widgets will be essentially web apps, wrapped in a COD file so they can be loaded to a BlackBerry. More slides after the jump.
