A few days ago, XDA member morpheum. let us know that Opera released the alpha version of their mobile widget manager for Android devices with support for WAC 1.0 APIs. This build will work on any Android 2.1 and up, and it allows widgets to access and use device features, such as accelerometer, GPS, camera and more. Please note that this build is in alpha stage and there are known issues, some of them may cause crashes and freezes, so please proceed with caution until the final release is available.
Opera is planning to release a build of better quality in January 2011, and a WAC 1.0 emulator for desktop computers with support for WAC APIs, so widget developers will have more tools to play with.
