The original iPhone could do it. The Palm Pre, with its WebOS will do it. And it looks like Windows Mobile 6.5 will be able to do it, too. “It” is the ability to run web applications, and it’s coming to Microsoft’s newest mobile operating system as widgets.

A .widget is basically compressed assemblage of HTML, javascript, and image files. Reports indicate that the current build of WM 6.5 includes the two examples shown above – MSN Money and MSN Weather – as well as a Live Search widget.

It’s an intelligent move by Microsoft, though likely to draw some criticism for copycatting. Still, with millions of web developers out there .widgets give them a simple way to deploy applications on Windows Mobile devices with their existing coding knowledge.
