At a high level, what are the OS 5.0 features that are required that are not available to devices running OS < 5.0? In other words, is there going to be any way to run widgets on older devices?
I like the new widget development method, but it will be a long, long time before OS 5.0 will be in widespread use. Once the new OS 5.0 is released for older devices, it takes a long time for the carriers to make them available, and it takes even longer for companies/end users to actually upgrade the older devices (if at all).

There are two main items that are on 5.0 that make widgets possible.
So without these two items on older operating systems, widgets cannot work.
Update and spreading of the new operating system does take time. So this is a technology that is something we are wanting to build on and also provide a new means for development on the new smartphones as they come out.
