Silverlight comes to Nokia

Bit slow off the mark on this one as I was travelling north yesterday (wish I was travelling west to Mix :-)).

Seems Silverlight is coming to mobile devices and to Nokia first. Very cool. Roberto D'Angelo has the detail.

Scoble raises a fun question on whether Steve Jobs would pick Silverlight for the iPhone. Might not be so far from the truth if you look at this article and his view of Flash on the iPhone:

Turning back to the iPhone, don't expect support for Adobe's Flash technology anytime soon. The full-blown PC Flash version "performs too slow to be useful" on the iPhone, and a mobile version called Flash Lite "is not capable of being used with the Web," Jobs said. Without an option that falls in between, it sounds like Flash is not going to be supported on the iPhone until the performance of the underlying hardware improves.

    This is all very well Mark, but the SDK goes out to S60 licencees only, so those of us developing with the new Silverlight betas cant get the S60 bits to test our developments on S60 devices……they should be available from Nokia to all developers…..
