Nokia has announced you will soon be able to see Silverlight content on your Series60 (and earlier Series 40) Nokia mobile phones. The announcement comes just a day before Mix08 starts, and the press release states that:

Microsoft will demonstrate Silverlight on S60 during the opening keynote at Microsoft's MIX08 conference on March 5 in Las Vegas. Silverlight is intended to be available to S60 developers later this year.

So this now means should Microsoft make any of its Windows Live services using Silverlight, you will get the same experience on your mobile as you will on your desktop, whether you're using a Windows Mobile, or Symbian. Of course this doesn't just apply to Microsoft, it will be interesting to see whether people start building Silverlight applications that are geared specifically to mobile users.
