Microsoft Silverlight for Symbian official

Microsoft's alternative to Adobe's Flash, Silverlight, has now exited the beta stage and is available for Nokia's Symbian^1 (S60 5th edition) devices. The software can now be downloaded from Nokia's Ovi Store or directly from Microsoft. Users can see Silverlight sites in Symbian^1's integrated browser and install Symbian^1 apps developed in Silverlight.

There are currently only two demo web apps available, Bing and HSN. Microsoft pledges that it will soon make available live and on-demand media streaming using IIS Smooth Streaming that includes multiple bitrate switching, hardware-assisted H.264 video playback and .NET support.
