Silverlight for S60 5th edition now available along with a Bing App
"Silverlight, a cross-browser, cross-platform implementation of the .NET Framework for building media experiences and rich interactive applications for the Web on desktop computers, is now available for Nokia S60 5th Edition devices such as Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, Nokia N97 and Nokia N97 Mini."
Well, finally Microsoft released Silverlight for Nokia S60 5th edition smarpthones, and with the release of Silverlight comes the Bing Application based on Silverlight as you might guess. What exactly Silverlight means for the Nokia S60 5th edition smartphone owners, I am not sure, but I personally do not have some craving for Silverlight just for the fact that Silverlight is not used on many websites and the one's that use it, are orbiting very closely to Microsoft.
The upside of this is that now you will be able to view Silverlight content right from your Nokia S60 browser, which is a big plus. Other than that and the new Bing application, currently I don't see other uses for Silverlight on my Nokia N97, but this might be just for now. Who knows, maybe in time as more and more people start developing apps and content using Silverlight, I might be not as skeptical as I am now.
