Silverlight, Microsoft's Flash competitor, may finally be coming to Windows Mobile, at least according to a recent Twitter post. [via the:unwired]

As you can see above, "Just got word that Silverlight will be available in the next release of Windows Mobile." OK, that's not nearly the same as an official news release from Microsoft or anything, but it's certainly a glimmer of hope.

First widgets, and now eventually Silverlight? A lot of that trash talk about WM6.5 not having enough new features may soon enough one day be going by the wayside, huh, folks?

Update: As noted in our comments (thanks, guys!), the news out of MIX09 is that Silverlight missed the 6.5 window and is now targeting Windows Mobile 7. That's Twitter rumors for ya.
