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.

From a survey of 4000+ mobile users, 57 percent of Windows Phone 7 users are “very satisfied” with the devices. That compares to 50 percent who are “very satisfied” with their Android device. Seventy percent of iOS users report being “very satisfied”.

Guess I’m alone in the World…
