Silverlight Looking to be the New Golden Boy on Mobile Phones

Mobile

Initially looking like nothing more than a more robust flash replacement, Silverlight is looking to reinvent itself on the mobile phone front. In releasing a set of tools for developers to begin work on applications that will work on the new Windows Phone 7 Series phones releasing later this year. Along with the tools is a Windows Phone 7 Series emulator to make it easy to test these apps.

Windows Mobile has struggled in recent years to entice developers to make apps for the platform but it looks Microsoft is looking to change that tone. Giving developers early access to the tools necessary to create apps is a step in the direction and a unified market is another. Now, Microsoft can only hope it’s not too late for developers to jump aboard and abandon the iPhone train.
