    Perhaps I'm blind - i have searched the market place and googled...but i'm unable to find this widget.

    I'm a bit perplexed as to why it wasn't included on the incredible.

    Any ideas?

    And if not - any suggestions as to a good general news widget?

    Are you referring to the "Today in History" widget by HTC? The only official "news" widget I've seen was by Google (News and Weather), not HTC.

    The best one I found is "Express News"

    I never heard of an HTC News Widget either, but the closest thing I guess would be the Friendstream widget in Sense 2.1 maybe.

    However, I have one my Twitter accounts setup to follow just news like CNN & FoxNews, and use that account on the built in Peep Widget because I use Seesmic for my other regular Twitter account.

    Theres the new widget from the nexus, if that's what you're taking about. It's called genie widget I think. I posted the apk in another thread somewhere. Search, for genie widget, you'll find it.

    Yes it's the genie widget. Gives you the "News and Weather" app which is indeed a great little app. It's out there for download if you look for "GenieWidget.apk"
