Nokia to Support Microsoft Silverlight

Nokia announced plans to make Microsoft Silverlight available

for S60 on Symbian OS as well as for Series 40 devices and Nokia Internet tablets. The deal will substantially extend the reach of Silverlight by making the platform available for hundreds of millions of devices.

Microsoft's Silverlight is a cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in for delivering next-generation media experiences and rich interactive applications. The companies plan to make Silverlight available to S60 developers later this year with initial service delivery anticipated shortly thereafter for all S60 licensees.
