Silverlight Mobile... On Nokia Before Windows Mobile

I kind of had a feeling that Silverlight would be coming to Mobile Devices soon... I just didn't realize it wouldn't come on Windows Mobile first. News.com has the scoop:

Microsoft's Silverlight browser plug-in will be bringing videos and other rich media to Nokia smartphones later this year.

The two companies on Tuesday at Microsoft's Mix '08 conference are scheduled to announce that Microsoft will write a version of Silverlight for Nokia's Series 60 (S60) smartphone software that runs on Symbian OS. The software, which will be available later this year, will also run on Series 40 devices and Nokia Internet tablets.

Now I've seen some pretty cool apps for the S60, and now hopefully we'll be able to see even more soon. Does that mean .NET development could be coming to the S60? Let's hope so.
