Silverlight for Symbian S60 devices

Microsoft has released Silverlight platform design to work with Symbian S60 devices at the on MIX10 conference at Las Vegas.The plateform is now available for Nokia SymbianOS (S60 5th Edition) devices i.e. Nokia 5235, 5800 XpressMusic, Nokia N97 and Nokia N97 Mini Mobiles. I did some basic test with nokia 5235 and it runs with charm.

The current Silverlight beta for Symbian comes in two forms – one as an installer for Symbian (S60 5th edition) devices and the second one in the form of a developer tools suite for developing Silverlight applications for Symbian devices including emulator etc.

Silverlight includes a Runtime that is optimized to display content on memory-constrained devices.

  •  The ability to view Silverlight applications in the mobile browser.
  •  Tools to build Silverlight applications that target devices

Microsoft has bought the Silverlight platform to a non-Microsoft mobile platform for the first time ever.

In order to get started with Silverlight for Symbian, you will want to familiarize yourself with the platform capabilities.

More resources are available on microsoft website.

Days are not far when you will see silverlight on rest of consumer devices ..
