Silverlight for Symbian coming real soon


Mary Jo Foley was quick enough to notice that Microsoft posted the Silverlight Beta executable & tools for Symbian on March 11 before everything was pulled out a few hours later. Here’s the tools description:

“The installable executable file enables users to run Silverlight applications on the Nokia S60 5th Edition platform. The executable file includes the Silverlight runtime for Nokia S60 5th Edition devices, the Silverlight runtime for Nokia S60 5th Edition emulator, sample applications, and developer documentation.”

And the executable description:

“The installable executable enables user to run Silverlight applications on the Nokia S60 5th Edition platform.”

Nokia is currently the only mobile company who has signed a deal with Microsoft to make Silverlight available on their platform. We should expect more news on this subject next week at MIX.
