Silverlight – a risky strategy for Nokia?

Microsoft love watching others take commercial risks and then swamping them out of the market.

One only has to think of Netscape vs. Explorer, WordPerfect vs. Word, and Novell vs. Microsoft Server.

At the turn of the millennium Microsoft distained mobiles as almost toys, yet they rapidly pushed deep into mobility to preserve their future, with considerable success in niche markets.

Now we are seeing the attack on Adobe Flash and Nokia’s compliant.

This will seriously damage Adobe’s future commercial strength and concede another market segment to Microsoft.

Having let Microsoft into their realm, Nokia may find their future in jeopardy.
