PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia just posted its quarterly results - including shipped devices - and it's not looking good. Massive losses, sales dropping, and no growth in Lumia sales in the US. The company is losing money hand-over-fist, and with Windows Phone 8 still months away, the company warns the next quarter will be just as bad.

Silverlight is already legacy and will not be supported in the future. It would be silly to build up anything new on it. The success of Silverlight is, well, limited. There are just very less things using Silverlight. The Silverlight and Flash kind of browser plugin turned out to have no future with HTM5. WinRT at least has Microsofts support and works fine on all current Microsoft platforms.
