Alltel Celltop Widgets Hands-On

Apple's not the only one with a widget-capable phone. Alltel's Samsung u520 has celltop built-in, which means you can get weather, stocks, and sports scores with only a few clicks.

The response time is pretty decent for a cellphone, and the graphics are actually quite good. As you can see in the video, each cell takes up half the screen until you maximize it. The widgets there are good for a launch product—sports scores, weather, stock, call list—but should get much better as people develop new ones for it. Since it's open source, you can bet they'll be coming soon. So far our verdict is a positive one.
