Is Silverlight Ready for Windows Mobile?
Turns out Silverlight (opens in new tab) 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?
