I watched the keynote live from visitmix.com, and was thrilled to see great demonstrations done with Silverlight 2.0.
I was just waiting for the mobile part of the Silverlight. There were two demos of Silverlight Mobile, one on a Windows Mobile 6 device, and other was on Nokia N95 8GB. Both applications looked great.
The on-demand stream of the keynote is now available, you can watch the entire keynote, or if you want to just skip to the Silverlight Mobile part, goto 2:12 time, where the demo of the two mobile applications were shown.
If you are unaware of what is Silverlight, you might also want to take a look at this overview.
MS also released beta version of IE8, which some cool new features. For example, Activities and WebSlices. I really enjoyed the WebSlices idea. Check out the IE8 website for more.
Unfortunately, Silverlight Mobile beta was not released, but there’s a recent update on MIX website about new sessions for IE8 and Mobile.
I’m currently scheduling downloads in my download manager. I’ll post some experiments with Silverlight 2.0 soon.
