After Microsoft first demoed Silverlight for Windows Mobile back in May last year and Nokia recently unveiled plans to integrate it into its phones as well, Microsoft now unveiled that Windows Mobile should gets some Silverlight love later this spring as well.
According to Microsoft's Silverlight Mobile fact page, a first Developer CTP of Silverlight for Mobile will be available in 2nd Quarter of 2008 targeting Windows Mobile 6. Like on the Desktop, Silverlight for Mobile will take the form of a browser plug-in but featuring Silverlight 1.0 only (Microsoft just released Silverlight 2.0 for desktop computers).

Above a demo of WeatherBug (a well-known stand-alone Windows Mobile application) featuring Silverlight 1.0.

It's not yet known, how Microsoft will distribute Silverlight for Mobile and if it will be available for ODMs and therefore for ROM updates only or as stand-alone application which enhances Internet Explorer Mobile on its own.

Cheers ~ Arne
