Symbian S60 gets Microsoft’s Silverlight rival to Flash

David Meyer from ZDNet UK has posted “Symbian S60 gets Microsoft’s Silverlight rival to Flash“.

Silverlight is now supported on mobile devices before even the release of Windows Phone Series 7. As Single Dealer Platforms grow to focus more on mobile devices (we’ve worked on trading, pricing and alerting projects on more conventional mobile platforms like the Blackberry & iPhone), it’s interesting to see new opportunities with Windows Phone 7 and Silverlight on Symbian. Any standard Silverlight XAP file will run on your Nokia 5800 and N97 handset without changes, meaning Silverlight can now be used as a framework for building high powered trading workstations on mobile devices.
