File Format Description

HTML-based widget used by Windows Mobile, an operating system for PDAs, digital phones, and other mobile devices; contains an archive of files in a compressed Zip format; may store .HTML, .XML, .CSS, and .JS files, as well as other Web-based files.

WIDGET files are used for deploying small programs for capabilities such as weather and news reports, maps, and games.

NOTE: WIDGET files are actually .ZIP files that have been renamed with the ".widget" extension. Therefore, you can unpack them by renaming the file extension to ".zip" and decompressing them using any Zip-compatible decompression utility.
