Dynamics NAV 2009 – Web parts??

If you look at the “role center” for sales order processor, you’ll notice a portion of the screen that shows data from Outlook. View image. You can actually click on the number of emails and launch Outlook.
For those of us familiar with SharePoint, this begs a question: Can we do this with other applications? Or can we develop our own “parts.”
Turns out that the answer appears to be “Yes, but…” Yes, it WILL be possible, BUT it’s not documented in the (first) 2009 release. We have to wait for that.
I’m not holding my breath.
