We Tested: Silverlight for Symbian

Microsoft yesterday released the full version of Silverlight for the brand appliances Nokia. The plugin can now be downloaded through the Ovi Store, but as usual will only work on some devices – not at all. The company’s intention was to launch a full version of the technology for Symbian in 2008, but development was delayed … delayed … And here we are in the second half of 2010.

The new release works only on devices that run the Symbian S60 ^ 5, including the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, Nokia N97 and Nokia N97 Mini. In addition to viewing content available in Silverlight – competitor of Adobe Flash created by MS – developers will also be able to use the tool to create new applications.

We tested two devices with Symbian. In the Nokia 5800, the installation was successful. However, to access the page Channel 9, a Microsoft site facing developers with video in Silverlight, and choose a video, what happened was download the video file (in format for Real Player) instead of playing within the browser.

With the same Nokia, a special version of Bing Silverlight ran smoothly, complete with special formatting for mobile.

In the Sony Ericsson Vivaz things were more complicated. First because the application on Ovi Store was not downloaded by mobile phone (Ovi is Nokia’s not Sony Ericsson).After discovering a version of Siverlight compatible with the Vivaz at the MS site itself, the installation was the way we expected. Too bad that, once installed, the application does not work.
