Silverlight for Symbian

a year back when Microsoft started silverlight i was not sure about it’s future and with the pace they were proceeding. But in this short span Microsoft has taken some serious steps towards the development and interoperability of silverlight. Like for Linux platform a collaborative effort Moonlight (though i haven’t tested but it looks promising) is open source cross platform implementation of silverlight.
also news are around that Microsoft is testing beta for Silverlight for Android.

and just days ago they launched Silverlight for Symbian, such steps showed Microsoft’s strong efforts to strongly capture the Market which is currently owned by Adobe Flash.

The plugin for Symbian (S60 series) can be downloaded here.

Microsoft Windows Phone Developer Tools

Today in Mix010 Microsoft has announced Windows Phone Developer Tools and the great thing which is new for me atleast (but i must say i suspected it Embarrassed) is that it’s purely Silverlight… Scott Guthrie announced that development plateforms for Windows Phone are Silverlight and XNA..
The most amazing thing is that unlike it’s predecessor Windows Mobile or so… it’s not a compact framework of Original, it’s not Silverlight Compact or Silverlight for Windows Phone… it’s SILVERLIGHT full framework…
Development tools are available only with Visual Studio Express 2010 IDE and can be downloaded from here
Microsoft has shown a pretty good simulator for Windows Phone:

Technology Crossover….

i think the guys is right… we are on a Technology Crossover… aren’t we?

HTML and the web page dominance is now over. A whole generation of users are growing up using devices and interacting with the internet only via Apps. Apps are our future; we are now living in the App Economy, as Business Week puts it.
Is the iPhone (and Android) the harbinger of death for web pages?
