    I just thought of something.

    Since the weather app displays the current weather info right on the homepage, then im pretty sure you will need an unlimited data plan, because the weather will need to update

    And I think this is also the case for all of the "Wigdets". They would need an almost constant stream of data.

    I think the widgets will connect and refresh when you display them, not continuously, much like Dashboard.

    i don't, i think they will regularly update, because if they jsut did it when you clicked on them, why would it display the temperature?

    It could store the data and get it when a connection is available - its not like the phone is going to freeze up and die if you are out of range. Most likely it will use the last downloaded data and just display.

    I believe the weather icon is static (i.e. it does not update according to the current weather).

    They're talking about the actual information within the widget itself (in this case, weather), not the icon associated with a particular widget - so the information in regards to the weather is always going to be constantly updating. :confused:
