Microsoft has announced the launch of its Silverlight platform designed to work with Symbian S60 devices at the ongoing MIX10 conference at Las Vegas.

This is the first time that Microsoft has bought the Silverlight platform to a non-Microsoft mobile platform. Silverlight is a cross platform implementation of Microsoft’s .NET Framework for creating interactive applications for the web on desktop computers and of late, mobile phones.

The current Silverlight beta for Symbian comes in two forms – one as an installer for Symbian ^1 (S60 5th edition) devices and the second one in the form of a developer tools suite for developing Silverlight applications for Symbian devices.
