some of nice widgets are in Belle as one can see on some sites.
What I am riddle is, how one can have more favorite persons
than four with the widget "Contacts,favorites"?
It shows four, but when inserted another widget,
it shows the same four twice and not eight different.
Email Widget looks nice but is a lot space consuming.
When in previous releases was place for five Email account on one Homescreen, whereas now it uses so much space just for two email accounts.
To check five to six accounts it wastes three homescreens out of six,
thats two wasted of the three more homescreens.
If other things are also going to waste space on the small display
the increase from three to six homescreens is no better, but loosing overview.
As it is very nice to hace on/off widgets for WLAN,NFC,VPN
I miss the Bluetooth and the 3G/GSM switch!
Where displays are for WLAN, VPN, 3G/GSM
I miss the display for NFC on a NFC Smartphone.
Another point, shouldn't VoIP Service and VPN not be better
directly included in the OS because of the all purpose use?
It would be better than the Microsoft Communicator
which is limited to company use and not every company like to use it.
Will be the very neccessary integration of Navigation commands over Bluetooth finally come with Belle Updates?
This is a live saving function, because the driver doesnt have to handle between Radio, Phone Call and navigation like today, but simply follow the navigation while watching the traffic.

I also think that the email-widget is far too big. You can easily have that information on much smaller space. It's annoying that it has to have almost an entire homescreen to itself - now I can't have on the first homescreen anymore because it takes up a crazy amount of space.
On the other hand, the calendar widget only shows 1 entry/event! A calendar widget that can only show one upcoming event is pretty useless. You would expect to be able to see at least 3 upcoming appointments/events.
EDIT: There is mentioned a widget called 'large calender' above, but I can't find it - at least not in the Belle-version I downloaded yesterday.
Where is this LARGE CALENDAR WIDGET???? Cannot FIND IT! and this WEATHER WIDGET ????
4) Large Calendar - This is the same size as the new email widget but, again, is interactive and shows a number of events per day. You can also create events directly from the widget and view the next 7 days without opening up the calendar.
6) Weather - There is a new weather widget which shows the weather conditions based on locations. Quite handy.
