functional mobile skins?

One day I was browsing Facebook through my phone. I've got it neatly fitted in the Nokia e71 as a Widsets (soon Ovi) widget. What striked me was the time I was without using my phones "real" operating system. Of course technically the Facebook widget was running through Symbian, but I did all kinds of things in Facebook without reverting back to eg. my calendar, contacts, or media gallery. Could it be that a portal will someday be the main "operating view" into your phone? Or maybe portals turn into functional skins you can download into your mobile, and they will map their functions into the phone's functions as well as possible. Time will tell.
