Update: It’s official, one day after this blog post went live. Click here to grab the bits.
Over 2 years ago Microsoft and Nokia announced that Silverlight will be making its way to S40, S60 (Symbian), and Maemo (now MeeGo). They finally came through on March 11th, delivering the bits for Symbian, but then it was quickly pulled according to Mary-Jo Foley from All About Microsoft.
Why was it removed?
It’s a public relations opportunity that both companies don’t want to miss. Some senior executive from Microsoft is going to get on stage at MIX, say Nokia is innovative and a fantastic partner, then invite a senior executive from Nokia to come on stage, who will then say Microsoft is a leader in content delivery, then an announcement will be made, written up by a bunch of sweaty, smelly, slightly hungover bloggers, journalists, and analysts who flew all the way to Las Vegas to cover the event.
In other words, we can’t wait!
