Turns out Silverlight might be just around the corner. As we've discussed here before, Silverlight is sort of super-flash-replacement available as a plugin for most browsers on several platforms, including Windows, Mac, Linux, and very soon: Windows Mobile and even ...Nokia?

Silverlight allows designers and developers to produce rich web applications. Now we can expect those same applications on our mobile phones. Microsoft has just signed a deal with Nokia which will bring Silverlight to millions of mobile phones. And yes, in case you were worried, it's definitely coming to Windows Mobile too, in short order - check out this neat demo that we mentioned in May of last year to get a feel for what we mean by "rich web applications."

This will bring heavy competition to Adobe
