    Silverlight WP7/Symbian

    Any experiences to port Silverlight Widgets for WP7 and Symbian platform (http://store.ovi.com/content/46120). Just want to understand, what is the effort needed (if any) to port widgets?

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...(v=VS.96).aspx mentions some mandatory changes, and there are some limitations listed in http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...(v=VS.96).aspx

    It is a matter of wording. Obviously I am aware of Silverlight on S60, see #1 and #2. I also have to admit that I have been thinking the plugin came from Microsoft, as the page on Ovi Store suggests that.
    However I still think that Symbian has not supported Silverlight.

    Whatsoever, is that Nokia not pay effort to it, or MS make fun with its partner?

    From your reply, it seems like the latter because of the never coming plugin.

    it's not a matter of "making fun" - the silverlight team has a lot to do these days... eg. we had to really wait for the Opera plugin...
