Silverlight on IPad 3

22 Jul

I’m a Silverlight MVP and I love Silverlight! These days I often hear “Isn’t Silverlight dead?” – well to some Silverlight have never really existed but I think Silverlight have a bright future ahead. I also hear a lot complaining about problems with the IPad due to the fact that IOS is just a mobile OS.

It has been reported Windows 8 will be able to run on ARM processors. This will open up some new possibilities for Windows based slates and I guess we will see hardware looking like IPad – but running a full OS instead of a mobile OS.

If Apple want to compete with Windows 8 running on ARM processors they need to upgrade the IPad – they need to run a full OS. A few days ago Apple launched OSX Lion. It looks great and with its new feature to show the apps like on an IPad I guess Apple have taken the initial step to launch IPad 3 running OSX Lion.

With a full OS like OSX Lion it will be possible to run Silverlight on IPad 3.
