The team behind the Nokia N97 have launched a competition to find the most creative, innovative and useful widget to stick on the new device’s home screen. The winner will receive a production-mode N97 ahead of public release. The widget will also be fully produced so you can spot your handiwork on N97s world wide!

What is a widget
A widget is a time-saving element of the device’s user interface, a visual building block that provides an easily accessible single interaction point with an application, which holds and processes data. There are thousands of types of widget.
