WidSets has recently partnered with Nokia Interactive, Nokia’s international mobile advertising provider, to offer banner advertising in the widgets themselves as well as user’s online dashboards. In almost two years, their user-base has grown to over 6 million users, making them very desirable for advertisers. With the partnership with Nokia, WidSets has opened up their network to a wide array of international Media and Internet brands. Since the service is free to use, advertising is key, and WidSets felt that Nokia global advertising reach was the perfect fit.
