Sony Mobile has had a keen interest in the Firefox OS from the very start, in fact they were one of the first manufacturers to offer Firefox OS support.
Sony has now uploaded some new functionality to Bugzilla for community involvement and evaluation, the “Gadget framework” in a hope that it can be integrated into the FirefoxOS master branch.
The functionality is in the form of “gadgets”, or if your from the Android world you would know this functionality as widgets. Gadgets can be loaded onto the homescreen and the lock screen.
The video below shows how you can added them, move and remove them. You can also resize the Gadgets but this isn’t shown.
It will be interesting to see how well these will be received and if they will make it into the Application framework.
